It might be useful for some cases to allow multiple uses of the same key.

That particular example, however, seems wrong from a "modelling reality"
point of view: There is no object in reality that is both a bank and an
atm. There is a bank (object #1), there is an atm (object #2), and
object #2 is /within/ object #1. I think that creating an atm node
within a bank polygon perfectly represents this situation.
