Well, I would not want to pollute the hairdresser list with shelters.  
This is getting funny. Think about this scenario: Someone has been 
hiking and camping for weeks in the forests and is looking for the 
closest hairdresser, so that he can return to civilization without 
scaring too many people. And all he gets is another hiking shelter. :-)

I have not used the 0x2f14 so far, because its Garmin Finnish 
translation says 'social welfare office'. I can imagine that shelters 
could be used by the homeless, but somehow such tagging feels
