and shop=socks vs shop=clothes clothes=socks
We have at least 226 documented shop values, and many, many, many more in use but not (yet) documented.
But maybe some of them are avoidable? I think that in general it is a good advise to use subtags for specialized shops.
Do we really need
shop=fuel with fuel subtags would be clearly better. Especially as there is huge variety of things that can be burned - we do not need to have
shop=natural_gas and so so on.
See Tag:shop=fuel - OpenStreetMap Wiki
And for example shop selling socks and only socks can be tagged as
shop=socks - or maybe better as
This is much friendlier to data consumers who can both:
shop=clothes clothes=sockswith some special support like dedicated icon or description
Going further - there are uses of
Maybe that would be better working as subtags of
shop=trade ? See Tag:shop=trade - OpenStreetMap Wiki
Having separate shop value for every single specific shop selling some kind of specialist equipment seems to not be a great idea for me, especially if we intended to have this data being used. Expecting data consumers to handle new shop values that keep appearing all the time will not work well.
