[Tagging] Aircraft Traffic Control towers

Hello List.

Aeroway wiki [1] defines "new" object tagging as
man_made=tower
service=aircraft_control (which control? visual? radar?)
(taginfo 0 entries)

but there are other variations:

man_made=tower
tower:type=aircraft_control
(taginfo 323 entries)

aeroway=control_tower
(taginfo 884 entries)

aeroway=control_tower
(taginfo 148 entries)

I'm pretty confused because AFAIK the only discussion [2] is rather poor
and it doesn't lead to any consolidated tagging scheme.

Since I'm going to import and conflate some italian ATC towers, I need some
help about best practice.
