Here are some other UK types that occur to me.  Some already have other
ways of
being mapped.  Some may fit in with categories/classes/whatevers you already
have.  I don't insist  that your proposal deals with all of them right now
already have enough to be going on with) but it would be nice if your
doesn't make it impossible to add them, cleanly, at a later date.  Don't
yourself into any corners if you can avoid it. :)

Site of Special Scientific Interest.  Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
World Heritage
Site and World Heritage Site Arcs of View.  Registered Historic Landscape.
Wreck.  There are also scheduled monuments, but they're generally man-made
dealt with by heritage=*.
