I like this proposal as well. It allows for more expression in a
single tag and unties the concept of an entrance from a building. But
at the same time, the changeset was a bit premature. As was noted
earlier, this new tag can live along side the old one for now. At some
point I would probably support an automated retagging/removal of the
old one but not yet.
