Apologies if I'm duplicating discussion that's already been had, as I'm 
coming late to this, but how about one of the 0x2f ones that only 
renders as a square dot*  with a default name, perhaps?

0x2f|0x10|23  others|personal-service|
0x2f|0x14|23  others|social-service|

amenity=shelter [0x2f14 resolution 23 default_name 'Shelter']

The "dot" or its name won't appear until a relatively high zoom level, 
but are searchable in the "all POI" list on an etrex and the 
corresponding POI / spell name list on a nuvi.  On an etrex they appear 
in the "others" POI search.  The last time that I looked at the default 
style "0x2f10" was used for hairdresser and similar, so it might be an 
issue if people are using the "others" list seriously.


* (that I've seen on an etrex vista and a nuvi 265w)
