[Tagging] the current situation of camp_site=camp_pitch

Some time ago, the proposal of tourism=camp_pitch was approved in order
to respect/return to the initial meaning of camp_site=* (the level of
infrastructure of a tourism=camp_site).
This involved a lot of work in reviewing site by site existing objects
to migrate them to the new scheme.

this has the perverse effect of bringing out even more tag errors on
objects remaining with camp_site=camp_pitch
A large number of the remaining objects are indeed either
tourism=camp_site camp_site=basic or impromptu, or duplicates of them
an example https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5069983850

As a result, the old documentation of camp_site=camp_pitch introduces
people in error, some people think it is wrong to correct a
camp_site=camp_pitch other than with tourism=camp_pitch
I therefore modified the page to talk about the historical meaning that
melted <> the most common errors/meaning of the remaining objects
I also add on the page tourism=camp_pitch the frequent errors that
I had already documented on the French page.

a rereading and improved wording are welcome :)
