Mainly interested in tourism- related POIs (for usage with apps) and shops.

As there are many shops which offer very different items or services, (which cannot be subsumed in a certain shop type), IMHO a general namespace tagging scheme should be established to express shop details, i.e. which services or goods they offer.

As an example, see shop=motorcycle, shop=ski or shop=boat. In most cases, this will be sales, rental, repair and parts. So if a car shop also sells motorcycles and/or bicycles, you could use the “service” tags bicycle:sales=yes motorcycle:sales=yes motorcycle:rental=yes car:rental=no This way there’s no need to create a separate shop.

There are currently two apps supporting motorcycle POIs : Also check taginfo : (search for “motorcycle” and order it by count).
