[amenity-points] Label aerodrome nodes at higher zoomlevels

Description

Currently, aeroway=aerodrome nodes are only visible at 3 zoom levels-- Z10 as an icon and Z11-12 as text. Something along these lines in inc/layer-amenity-symbols.xml.inc would be good to increase their visibility: https://gist.github.com/3318292

I think this is important because I suspect the lack of visibility at higher zoom levels is causing confusion with mappers. I see airports duplicated in the database very frequently; more so than other types of objects.

When these objects are rendered at higher zoomlevels, duplicates are very easy to spot. Here are some particularly bad examples that were not difficult to find:
