That's a good point. I don't think there is any justification for it being different. But, "fair trade" is obviously a political point of view and there already was an established custom in much of society of using it as a mark of a particular certifying body. So the issue of "what does this mean" was less acute. I'm not saying that means treating "fair trade" itself as a fact in tagging is ok (v.s. treating "organization foo declared X to be certified as fair trade", which is a fact). > So, for example, certification:oxfam=yes for shops > selling fair trade products certified by Oxfam. Which leads me to think > that we need a double subtag (oh dear): > > certification:waste_policy:zero-waste.org=yes > certification:fair_trade:oxfam=yes Yes, that sounds entirely rational. We should keep in mind that we are designing tags to be produced by humans with computer help and consumed by computer programs. So well-organized and semantically clear really is the biggest concern. > And also that some kind of "general waste policy" tag is needed. Perhaps. But what the world really needs is not data in OSM but signs in front of every waste receptable with really clear instructions. I am increasingly see people standing at a bunch of bins trying to figure out what to do! > Anyway, we're meeting someone who works with one of these organisations > soon, maybe some new info that can help us here will come from that. OK, but keep in mind that organizations that promote certifications are likely to have a very biased view of their place in the world...
