I am currently preparing a proposal for monasteries and part of them
is generally also a dormitory. By looking up the wiki I found this
page:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:building%3Ddormitory
which does limit the use to "sleeping and living quarters for
University students, provided by the school."

I have at least 2 problems with this definition:

1. It doesn't seem to be a British English term (at least not with
this definition)
2. It seems to exclude the use for monasteries
(3. It was introduced without discussion or proposal)

If there is a majority in favor of keeping this tag nonetheless with
this definition, what should I use for the dormitory of a monastery?
E.g. I could use building=dormitorium (i.e. tag in latin).

cheers,
Martin
