Add icons to value drop down in adding tag dialog

Since more and more icons for common tag=value combinations are defined and used for preset and specially for the recently used tag list in the add tag dialogue, I realised, that I tend to identity recently used tags by the icons instead of reading the text (especially after changeing the list size from 5 to 20).
When I want to add a tag which is not in the list of recently used tags. I start typing key, hit TAB if I found the wanted value start typing the key and press ENTER when I reach the wanted value.
Sometimes key and especially values have similar names (like natural=scree and natural=scrub). When typing, the shown values depends on

  • are the value is used in a preset?
  • is the value used in the currently downloaded area?
  • did I used the key in the current session recently?

So I can't rely on the characters I typed, but I must always check the current result by reading the text.
w TAB r ENTER normally results in waterway=river. But when I added a riverbank before the same key sequence results in waterway=riverbank. And when I add water=pond before the same key sequence results in water=reservoir.
Therefore I would find it very helpful to see icons in the drop-down lists either when typing or when selecting from the list. The icons would help me verifying the correct value and to get hints for the most common values. Values without icons are normally uncommon or typos.
