Proposed Amenity Reorganization
See also Key:amenity
The amenity key is currently used for so many different things that it has no meaning. It has become a catch all category for everything that doesn't have a place elsewhere. I'm proposing breaking it up into more keys to help make things more organized.
With their tags:
Maybe also things like tombs, catacombs, mortuaries, funeral homes, etc. Could probably also replace landuse=cemetary
Maybe also check cashing, brokerages, stock exchanges, commodity exchanges, etc
I think a lot of other types government buildings could be added here as well.
This key has been proposed and passed a vote (15-4) but no further work has been done with it because the proposer doesn't have time. I'd move it along but I think it should be part of a larger reorganization of amenity. There are a lot of other tags that could be put in this category so I think its an especially important one.
I think there has been discussion about a key somewhat like this but nothing has been officially proposed.
Maybe also things like dumps, recycling baskets, etc.
That leaves us with a few stray tags which I think can be better placed elsewhere.
Hunting_stand can go in leisure. Marketplace can go in landuse. Signpost can go in the proposed information key. Vending_machine can go in the shop key, or failing that, its own key.
Which leaves place_of_worship. Maybe in a new spiritual key with things like holy_site, etc? It really doesn't fit well in amenity though.
