What is a "Public Tag" which is one of the options in the "Feature" section in the Edit mode? My guess from looking at some of the posts is that it is a more definitive sub-set for the Code.

Right now, I am not sure if I can add information there or not.

For example, for a "self-storage" center, the Code is "storehouse (SHSE)". If I use the sub-set logic, then the "Public Tag" would be "Self Storage". Google lists the following as synonyms for "storehouse" - warehouse, depository, repository, store, storeroom, depot, storage, and self-storage.

I am not sure I guessed this right or not.

I look forward to comments.
