Site_type=* is a subtag of historic=*. Both are largely the demesne of the
mapper Lutz because
they were defined by him for use on his historic place project:
I'm not saying he is the ultimate arbiter of those tags, because OSM is
anarchic and nobody
controls anything. However, his project is the only carto I know of where
those tags are
rendered. You are free to add any site_type you wish, even without prior
but if you want them to be rendered anywhere it's best to get in touch with
Lutz and discuss
it with him.
BTW, I don't know if Lutz is male or female but trying to rewrite the above
language is difficult.
