[Tagging] tagging monasteries, convents and

looking at the available data and in the wiki I'm currently missing
some tags for monasteries.

All I found is this: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:historic%3Dmonastery

which suggests to tag former monasteries as historic=monastery and the
monastery building as monastery=yes. If I see this right there is
currently no tag for a monastery as an institution/place, nor for some
of it's parts (the church will be tagged like any other church I
think, the garden could also be tagged with leisure=garden and maybe a
garden type, but the dorms and other specific places could merit some
dedicated tags).

I would like to distinguish between (and maybe more, let's see what
you can contribute).

(some might be attributes or subtags)

For the comunity that operates the place I will make a list in the
wiki so we can propose a set of typical values in unified form.
We could use the keys "operator" and "operator_congregation" (e.g.
"Canons Regular of the Immaculate Conception") for these.

This would be tagged on a surrounding area (or multipolygon relation
or site relation). Any comments? Wikipages I missed? Tags in use?
