The introduction of this new shop=appliance tag on the wiki has taken place late 2017, aligning with introduction of the tag in iD presets, meanwhile the more wide definition of shop=electronics has been in place since 2009, previously with no mention of shop=appliance. We now mention this shop=appliance tag as a possible new tag to use. See shop=electronics
