[Tagging] tagging awards and ratings

Apart from the legal aspects, which exclude it anyway, I find it completely
wrong to copy data statically into OSM that is by definition variable
(TripAdvisor "awards" are automatically generated data from user input).
Such data should not be inserted into the OSM database.
A similar argument goes for Michelin stars, even if they are "created" by
humans, but they are awarded - if I'm not mistaken - on a yearly basis.

(... not to speak about the data maintenance)
