[Tagging] Feature man_made=offshore_platform?

The feature man_made=offshore_platform was created as a wiki page and
then added to Map features, apparently without discussion, at some
point in the past.

It didn't have a very complete wiki page, but it looks like this is
mainly meant for offshore oil and gas drilling/production platforms -
I've just added a longer description.

It's only been used 400 times.

Should this tag be kept in Map features?

Pro: it seems like a fairly sensible tag, different than a man_made=pier

Con: Ideally it should have been proposed and discussed. The
definition is still weak, not used much, and perhaps
man_made=petroleum_well or =pumping_rig would be better in many cases?
