Calling monuments memorials

I think asking people to call monuments memorials, and memorials monuments, is "editing for the renderer" pure and simple.

The Jefferson memorial is a memorial. Boundary monument 34 is a monument.

If you want to know their importance, then have people give that as a additional parameter. Same goes with size.

Otherwise it's all very mind-bending. Jidanni (talk) 16:58, 21 February 2023 (UTC)

All monuments are also memorials, size is the difference. —-Dieterdreist (talk) 13:12, 22 February 2023 (UTC)
