[Tagging] Lifeguards

Just raised (or re-raised) the suggestion that lifeguard stations
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key%3Aemergency should be rendered
https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/4918#event-1668877116, as it
could be a potentially life-saving addition to the map.

Bryan had quite correctly pointed out that there are lot of similar, but
all pretty rarely used (<1000) tags for essentially the same thing, so has
suggested replacing them all with a simple emergency=lifeguard.

I can't see any major problem with doing that, but also keeping
emergency=life_ring for those places (boardwalks, jetties etc) where an
unaccompanied life ring is positioned.

What does everybody think?
