Conflict with other memorial values

The memorial=cenotaph tag may conflict with other types of memorials. For example, a cross marking the site of an empty tomb (cenotaph) could be tagged as historic=memorial + memorial=cross, but also as historic=memorial + memorial=cenotaph. Which one to choose in that case? The double possibility of tagging would create many cases of ambiguity: cenotaphs not tagged as such; crosses marking an empty tomb not tagged as cenotaphs, etc. The same with an small obelisk marking a empty tomb, for example. Tagging historic=memorial + memorial=obelisk;cenotaph or memorial=cross;cenotaph could be a solution, although it does not seem the best solution. --Dcapillae (talk) 08:53, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
