The building tag is used to show what kind of building it is, not its usage. ”A building that was built as a church” and so on in the descriptions of the values.

This does not contradict your point as that speaks about usage.

For instance this is now a museum, but clearly for many years was used as a church: https://sv.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sankt_Ibbs_nya_kyrka

Let's say the church was constructed in 1780 and ended as church in 1978, and now is a community centre. In that case it should be "building:1780-1978"="church", "amenity:1780-1978"="place_of_worship"”
