[amenity-points] Split POIs into prioritised groups

Description

Now that we are adding ever more POIs to the stylesheet, areas with dense POIs lack any sense of priority. Post offices are obscured by hairdressers, pub names don't render for fear of conflicting with the name of a bakery.

They should be split into a few different sets in the stylesheet, so that high priority POIs (e.g. bus stops, museums) are rendered first, followed by generally useful POIs (e.g. pubs, post offices), followed by all the rest (e.g. takeaways and hairdressers, and most shops).

The more POIs are added to dense areas, the more this idea has merit.

We'll of course be having countless discussions about all the intricacies of the order these things should be rendered in, but the basic idea is good.

Here's a nice example... a mosque being obscured by a little hahal convenience store next door:
