[Tagging] Proposal : Move "smoking" tag to active status

Additions to that page, I'd think, should be proposed separately.

The utility undergrounding RFC proposes tagging for a similar "regional
default value".
Eventually the tools will catch up :-)

But that case is simpler.  Smoking rules depend on the area AND the
establishment type:
And the legal definition of the restriction may not mach OSM's definition
(e.g. smoking
maybe allowed in certain bars owned by people who donate money to a
particular party ;-).

I say the definition of the tag should simply state that legally mandated
smoking status should
either not be tagged at all, or given *smoking=per_local_law*.
