for me it made more sense to discourage the whole tower:type concept and try to migrate to something more specific in the main tag. 

There are just too many too different types of towers to keep some of them in the same category while others like water towers are still in different categories anyway. Why not tag man_made=observation_tower / bell_tower / etc.
For tv / radio towers, broadcasting_tower seems less ambiguous.
