Site_type=* is a subtag of historic=*.  Both are largely the demesne of the
mapper Lutz because
the tags were defined by them for use on their historic place project:
http://gk.historic.place/

I'm not saying Lutz is the ultimate arbiter of those tags, because OSM is
anarchic and nobody
controls anything.  However, the historic place 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
discussion here,
but if you want the tags to be rendered anywhere it's best to get in touch
with Lutz and discuss
it with them.
