what about 

the bunker_type tag is already widely used, the value was invented on the fly, maybe you can find something that is already used and pertinent: http://taginfo.osm.org/keys/bunker_type#values

not completely sure about military=bunker, it would be suitable for military protection, while the shelter tag you suggest is suitable for protection against the weather.

I believe that a start_date tag would serve the purpose of historical placement much better than a historic=yes tag which really says almost nothing. Similarly the man_made=yes, which is implied by the word rock-cut and can be left out

It would still be desirable in this context to find a tag that says that the feature has been created by the Austrian Army. Is there already something in use?
