Where was the discussion that decided shop=insurance is a synonym for office=insurance, or shop=grocery is a synonym for shop=convenience? Etc. --Peter Reed (talk) 18:50, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

The idea is not to replace tags 1:1 (I even made a additional note on the shop=convenience page). It's to show mappers hey look at these tags, maybe these established tags fit better. As for shop=insurance/grocery both are undocumented lower usage tags compare to the others. If you think they are usefull then please document them and point out the difference to the more established tags. What also often happened is that people used amenity/shop= more freely in the past, because club/craft/office=* were not yet established. --AndiG88 (talk) 20:22, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Andi, that answers my question. --Peter Reed (talk) 22:01, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
