Kingdom Halls rendered with crosses

Jehovah's Witnesses do not use the cross so the rendering of Kingdom Halls with the same icon as other churches with religion=christian would be offensive and incorrect.

There should be an exception for the amenity=place_of_worship with religion=christian icon when denomination=jehovahs_witness

The key name="Kingdom Hall" should not be used to identify since it varies with language.

Since Jehovah's Witnesses do not recognize any official symbol or icon a simple generic square or a building without a cross would be fine.

Having a place for exceptions based on denomination is a good addition since it could render alternate icons for religious denominations that distinguish themselves from others in their general religion type.

This will have to stay on hold until we get denomination=* in the rendering db.
