This seems a good place to use the hazard key. There are a limited number of
instances of hazard=tide.
There's no reason why post-processing cannot append information about critical
hazards to names for rendering purposes, and thus we could avoid the spurious
information in the name tag.

First a comment on British usage. The main Romanesque period in Britain does
start in the middle of C11 more-or-less coincident with the Norman Conquest.
Although some large Romanesque churches were built earlier most were re-built
in the decades following the conquest (e.g., Winchester), and

entire Celtic fringe of NW Europe (Brittany, Cornwall, Wales, Ireland, Scottish
Highlands) shows this settlement pattern. The nucleated towns

Not just test tracks. Your post instantly brought to mind the training track at

must also have tracks designed for training of advanced driving skills.
This is pretty much the type of situation which the taxon tag is meant to cope

it's one for Bramley's or the cider apples loved by RichardF.
