[Tagging] Rethinking Map Features

I now think it is a good idea to switch to taglists for all of the Map
Feature page templates. It will make it much easier to keep the pages
consistent and to a reasonable length if all of the descriptions are
pulled from the wiki pages directly (just as is done for descriptions
used by Taginfo).

This just means that any deprecated or discouraged tags which are
currently "strikethrough" on Map Features will need something in the
description that mentions that they are discouraged. This is a good
idea anyway, so that the documentation is consistent.
