Someone has indeed done this. IMHO we shouldn't duplicate the data (or
non-data, in this case there are no more tags than name and
tourism=attraction on the new node), we should find a way to render the
name from the relation without "tagging for the renderer"-hacks. This would
include changing osm2pgsql to deal with site-relations.

I couldn't find any ticket for site-relations in the osm2pgsql and
osm-carto repos, so I have added them.
