Drop leisure=common (#3619)
This PR drops rendering of leisure=common. The leisure=common tag has several problems. I therefore think we should not render it on the default style. Some of these problems are: * The tag defines a legal ownership concept, not a physical concept. According to the [wiki](https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dcommon), a common is 'land which has an owner, but over which other people have certain rights'. I think we should render the physical appearance or purpose of features rather than their legal status. * The tag is very UK centric. Commons are a UK concept that does not really translate to other countries. * The tag is heavily misused. At least in Western Europe, almost all objects tagged with leisure=common are not actually commons. The tag is often used for random pieces of public grass, such as those alongside roads. The fact that the tag renders nicely green on the map probably has something to do with this. * Other tags are available. Almost all areas that are currently tagged with leisure=common can also be tagged with other tags that are currently being rendered, such as leisure=park, landuse=grass and/or landuse=farmland.
