[Merkaartor] Templatized tagging committed

Just to give my 2 cents. I too think it is unfortunate that we couldn't
share the file format for templated tagging. If I had done this
development, that would have been something I would have looked into.
There is clearly value in making a common tagging template description
for the OSM community beyond just Merkaartor or JOSM.

Nevertheless, he who writes the code, decides. Obviously, if Chris felt
more comfortable of using a custom template file format, then more power
to him. Withdrawing that change would be a net loss.

Here is my proposal : I will be on an airplane for 2x 7 hours next
week. If Dirk can send me the latest tag-preset definition file that
JOSM uses + a few guidelines on where I can add to the file format
without causing too much trouble for JOSM, I will try to look into
merging or at least bringing closer together both file formats.

How about it?
