Feature man_made=offshore_platform?

Joseph Eisenberg
The feature man_made=offshore_platform was created as a wiki page and
then added to Map features, apparently without discussion, at some
point in the past.

It didn't have a very complete wiki page, but it looks like this is
mainly meant for offshore oil and gas drilling/production platforms -
I've just added a longer description.

It's only been used 400 times.

Should this tag be kept in Map features?

Pro: it seems like a fairly sensible tag, different than a man_made=pier

Con: Ideally it should have been proposed and discussed. The
definition is still weak, not used much, and perhaps
man_made=petroleum_well or =pumping_rig would be better in many cases?

IMHO we should not question a tag just because it hasn't been discussed and voted, 400 uses of an offshore platform tag doesn't seem few, in the world "the number of oil platforms is expected to rise from 389 in 2010 to almost 500 in 2017". The sum of the region figures adds up to 1300 something for 2018, https://www.statista.com/statistics/279100/number-of-offshore-rigs-worldwide-by-region/

man_made=offshore_platform seems ok to me, although the definition isn't very mature yet.

Cheers,
Martin

Is there any other tagging scheme with
comparable popularity for this feature?

If no - it certainly should stay listed.
