[Tagging] tower types, cooling towers etc.

There's another similar issue: communication towers.

There are basically 2 kind of communication towers, one a subclass of
man_made=tower, the other man_made=communications_tower
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man%20made=communications%20tower

According to the above wiki page, in opposition to the man_made=tower page,
the communication towers which have "to be climbed on the outside", should
get the man_made=tower tag and subtag.

What shall we do, change the definition of man_made=communications_tower or
the definition of man_made=tower?

We have two almost equal tags, which should mean different things (wouldn't
it make more sense to have different names, or more explicit names for the
avoidance of confusion?):
A. man_made=communications_tower

B. man_made=tower
tower:type=communication_tower

Cheers,
Martin
