Here in Australia, I would consider “Costco” to be a “shop”. And they name themselves as “Costco Wholesale”. While they do require a membership, that membership is open to anyone without restrictions. Except for the need of a membership (which they happily sell you for 60 bucks the first time

Francois, I like your proposal and I apologize because I hadn't time to partecipate to discussion. Anyway, I have a question: in case of a culvert, you would still use tunnel=culvert? Because also a culvert is a (short) flooded tunnel, and consequently tunnel=flooded could be used. Alberto
