As an aside, I did go through the usage of "historic" in the UK and
Ireland, and it's a bit of a hodge-podge between "things that were once
something but there's nothing there now" (effectively used as a a
lifecycle tag), "things that are still something" (e.g. memorial), and
"things that are still something, but are important because of what they
were" (castle etc.). I ended up with a list of things to treat as
buildings, things to treat as "almost buildings", things that probably
aren't buildings and some specific other checks (e.g. "chimney"):
Essentially, it's a complete mess. I was glad that I was able to do
something useful with e.g.
- you can find a few grains of wheat in among the chaff but most of
what's in there is (like "hollow_way") a bit too idosyncratic to be even
thinking about creating a regular wiki page for.
