[Tagging] marking man_made=campanile as deprecated

This reminds me that the bell_tower tagging has a missing-default problem:
You can specify the fact that a bell_tower is free-standing by adding any
of three subtypes, but you cannot tag explicitly a non-free-standing

Additionally, the fact that the GB-English habit of assigning
free-standing-ness to the Italian word "campanlie" is not known in Italy,
as "campanile" is in reality the Italian word for a generic bell_tower,
attached or free-standing (you can easily check that in any dictionary). As
an effect of this most almost all free-standing bell_tower items in Italy
are not tagged with the additional bell_tower=campanile
tower:type=bell_tower and bell_tower=campanile: 48
tower:type=bell_tower without bell_tower=* : 8878
And there are non-freestanding bell towers in Italy.
I have not to go far to find an example: the Basilica of Saint Anthony of
Padua in Padova  has even two
