[Tagging] How to tag a threshing floor

historic=wayside_shrine and some other values of historic=* are examples
which show that the key "historic=" can be used for features which are
still functional.

A threshing floor is probably still usable for beating grain to remove the
chaff and straw, as intended, but with modern machinery available, these
features will no longer be used in countries with access to capital. They
are still used in remote areas where farmers have very few resources (e.g
Afghanistan, according to some photos available online). But most of those
in use in richer countries will be as historic sites or for special
festivals, as shown in the photos in the wikipedia article:

My preference would be for man_made=threshing_floor however.
