[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Remove node/way/relation Search API (#2412)

This API clearly shows its age, having never been fully implemented and simply returning 100 ways (or 2000 relations) at random matching the provided tags.

I'm sad to see this go, since it's my favourite part of the API, given its obvious age, lack of functionality, arbitrary limits and so on. As I said in #2228 I would normally fight tooth and nail against making backwards-incompatible changes to the API without bumping the version (or doing some well-publicised deprecation and removal) but, in this case, I don't really think the additional effort is worth it.

If anyone can show this API is useful, or is actually being used, please speak up!
