well, there are not so many different levels, but it might differ from

exactly, and by the size of the area you could try to guess the
importance (which will not always be true in the case of small
buildings, but surely you won't find a huge one that is not
important). I think it makes sense to have the basic levels of church
hierarchy in our datamodel. Height of the tower might also be quite
interesting (and useful for 3D-Model-makers).
