Used for agriculture "floors" or areas is man_made=threshing_floor (1608 
uses, no wiki page) (for grain threshing and winnowing). We have similar 
practices and facilities for many other crops like drying of coffee 
beans, cocoa beans etc...
How do you call it in French or in English ?

I wouldn't say bunker_silo would be a troll tag, would be if you 
literally follow the current definition as it needs to have walls, 
however in practice this isn't always the case as I explained before, we 
change the definition in the wiki.
