List of values
The following values are acceptable, but they are very generic since there are many distinct variations, such as low pressure sodium (SOX) lamps, high pressure sodium (SON) lamps, and LED lamps. They should be replaced when the type of lamp is known.
A proposal exists to replace this key with light:method=* or light_source=*, as part of a review how editors tag lighting in a broader context. For more information, see this proposal for light_source=*.
