My thoughts exactly about those open structures that house bells;
man_made=bell_cage (along with building=yes perhaps) would seem the best
fit in those cases, especially seeing as that tag is already in use. As for
adding subtypes to the tower:type tag, that seems an overly complicated way
to go about it. I cannot imagine how long it would take renderers to catch
up with such a scheme.

Moreover, isn't a campanile merely a type of bell_tower? Why would another
special tower:type=campanile be necessary? I would push for:
for all structures that are much taller than they are wide, i.e., towers,
that also contain bells, including steeples and campaniles.

For cases where you have a structure more like a house that contains bells,
