Recently I found out coffee:brand tag, used to store the brand that supplies coffee to a cafe or similar as cafes are usually tied to a coffee distributor exclusively. Here in Spain is also common that cafes and pubs have a beer distributor, so I thought of using beer:brand, but other local mappers suggested to use brewery, as it’s a commonly used and documented tag for this use.
Don’t you think it would be more appropriate to create a common scheme for this type of tagging? Using [type of product]:brand could be used for tagging another exclusive-brand products that may be available in a shop. An example for this could be a hairdresser whose products are only from a specific brand (also common here in Spain), or a bookshop that is only supplied with an specific brand of school supplies.
I don’t know how difficult it would be to migrate to a new label, but I think that this has been made before.
