Best not to use the type key for anything other than relation types (such as type=multipolygon).

A Crown Post Office is one that is either managed directly by Post Office Ltd, or is provided as part of a national franchise agreement with a major retailer. AIUI, WH Smith is, so far, the only retailer that has currently entered into such an arrangement, but I may be wrong. The difference between a franchised Crown Post Office and a normal sub Post Office is that in the latter, the management of the Post Office and the non-PO retail are the same (typically, of course, a village shop that combines the role of Post Office and general store), whereas in a Crown franchise, the Post Office section is managed separately to the normal retail operation even if they share non-managerial staff.
