I asked a similar question last week on the Dutch list. My question
was how to tag a former church that is not used as a church anymore.
There the answer was they tag them as building=church.
Now I see there is a historic-tag, so maybe that is a better one to
use. On the wiki historic=church is not mentioned, but could fall
under building="User defined".
Another question would be how the renderers handle those tags, because
you would like to have them on the map as church because of the looks
of the building. For most people the function of the building is
irrelevant and just say "go left at the church".
