Hi Martin, I may not fully understand the historic tag, but to me it is unlikely that every qanat is of historic interest, "of sufficient importance to justify use of this tag". In some areas, every village has three qanats. It would be like mapping every fountain as historic.
They're often not considered of historic interest locally, let alone nationally or internationally. Hope this clarifies my thinking...
