Looking through taginfo for man_made, it strikes me that structure could
easily substitute for man_made, at least until you get to beehive. Since
beehive's key is man_made, I assume it's not talking about a
nature=beehive. Structure is already being used as a key so it would mean
depreciating man_made in favor of structure.

Having a discussion about man_made is healthy and we shouldn't be quick to
brush it off. Though moving the discussion to tagging might make sense.
