[HOT] building=house

Looking at several bits of mapping in Africa it seems to be normal to use a
rectangle tagged building=house.

Would a simple POI tagged building=house be acceptable?  Most rendering
systems will drop an icon on a tagged POI, they take up a little less room
in the database and its faster to drop a POI in the center of a house than
draw a square.

Is there a special reason for using rectangles in this way rather than POIs?

Thanks John
