[Tagging] tagging for fairgrounds

i've had a little discussion of this over on the slack tagging channel.

i'm currently working on some historic World's Fair/Exhibition sites,
and also have reviewed a number of fair grounds in the US.

we really don't have any tagging specific to these sorts of structured
park-like areas that have extensive exhibition spaces. park and
recreation ground are not quite there.

so i'd like to propose one of these two

landuse=fairground
leisure=fairground

i'm ok with either. the idea is that these represent a structured
area with pavilions or exhibition spaces, perhaps a midway, and
so forth. it would be applicable both to such things as the periodic
"World's Fairs" and to the many local fairgrounds (they're all over
the US, tied to county and state fairs during the summer.)
fairgrounds in the US are currently tagged somewhat erratically as
mappers guess at what tags apply.
