Different possible meanings
The tag bottle=yes/no has been used with (at least) 2 meanings:
- is is most commonly used to specify whether or not an amenity=drinking_water feature is designed for easily refilling water bottles.
- According to Key:fountain, adding bottle=yes to other fountain=* water outlet types, when it has a downward dispenser to refill bottles at lower-than-tap pressure, to avoid creating separate amenity=drinking_water + fountain=bottle_refill
- According to fountain=bottle_refill, it indicates instead whether "empty bottles are available for purchase".
- it talks about "water bottle" without defining what exactly it means. Do we talk about (quite common here) 1.5L water bottles which you would use for longer trips (like in motor vehicle or in bicycle panniers)? Or of smaller 0.75L variety (the kind one might use on bicycle, because it holds enough water and still fits nicely in standard quick-to-reach bottle holder). Or hiking types, which are usually 0.5L or 0.3L to make easier to carry/fit on belt? It makes a huge difference, especially for tap/sink clearance). So same water source might easily fit one bottle, while at the same time impossible to fit another.
- it uses undefined and vague terms such as "easy". It is highly subjective.
