[Tagging] RFC: healthcare=sample_collection

This proposal will be useful for tagging COVID-19 testing sites, since
often they are just collecting a nasal swab or a blood sample, and not
actually running the test right there.

It will also make it possible to tag the location of a phlebotomy room in a
hospital or clinic building, where blood is drawn or other samples
collected, but it is then sent to a different building which actually does
the test (the healthcare=laboratory feature).
