Maybe a cat planet.osm | grep -i shelter | wc -l could shed some light on how
often it was used. The current germany.osm contains 72 shelters and refuges.
Seems there are not that many hikers in osm :) .

It's better to have a general tag than none. But if it comes to rendering, it
may lead to weird results. I'd thus prefer a dedicated tag like
amenity=shelter for the ones usually spread in woods.
