I came across an instance of the
importance key on the node marking the summit of Ben Nevis, and was interested to see how it is used. The wiki description suggested it might be in use to classify peaks, but both taginfo’s combinations and Overpass queries in various European regions suggest it might be mainly used for railway infrastructure.
I’ve added a line to the wiki page, but the documentation could do with further updating.
Also a plea for data consumers to add their tag usage to taginfo, as this really helps in clarifying likely current uses of a key or tag.
