we could have an additional tag for the size which aims at cases where
exact data is not easily available:
obelisk:size
with values
"monumental" (would be everything say above 6 meters height)
"modern" (not sure for the wording), would be everything between small
and monumental
"small" would be everything inferior to 1 meter.
