[Tagging] Feature Proposal - Voting - entrance=*

I fear, it's wrong that most data consumers would get informed simply 
because of a vote in the usual community channels.
I think, there are a lot of data consumers, who don't follow the 
changing tagging system after once implementing it.
That may be wrong, but I think, we should avoid mass changing, as long 
as it doesn't make something better.
In this case it's not worse to keep the old building=entrance as it is, 
because existing applications have to deal with it.

If (and I agree, that it's not time to do so, yet) there is a mass edit 
in this matter, I would suggest to
- ADD entrance=yes to objects with building=entrance
- ADD note="please note that building=entrance should be substituted by 
entrance=* in future. Compare [link to an explanation in the wiki]"

All other edits should be done manually to inform even the community 
members not actively following the usual channels, but using the editors 
to add their stuff like they know it.
