I have to disagree; amenity=shelter was meant to be hiking and tourism
related from the start.

While I think it's good to distinguish simple structures like shelters
from fully equipped overnighting places, it would be cool if shelters
were searchable, so you can do a search for the nearest shelter when
weather turns bad...
