I like the idea of a "culture" key. Would you like to draft a proposal?

For now, in the absence of that key, we have to decide whether these
features sit in amenity or tourism. The wiki makes the distinction by saying
that amenities are "important" and tourist features are other interesting
things to see. So I think it makes sense for current proposals like art
galleries to sit in tourism, and perhaps in the future to move those along
with theatres, cinemas, nightclubs, etc. under a culture key if that
proposal was voted through.
