[Tagging] "Feature Proposal - RFC - Qanat"

Hi Martin,

I may not fully understand the historic tag, but to me it is unlikely that
every qanat is of historic interest, "of sufficient importance to justify
use of this tag". In some areas, every village has three qanats. It would
be like mapping every fountain as historic.

They're often not considered of historic interest locally, let alone
nationally or internationally.

Hope this clarifies my thinking...
