Definitely.  I think it would be good, wherever possible, to stick to
the idea of the value of a tag "subclassing" the key, so that
building=* indicates what kind of building, and entrance=* indicates
what kind of entrance.

How would it be used with ways?  I think it might be useful to do that
to be able to indicate direction, but would there just be a short way
crossing the edge of the building?

And could / should we also use it for entrances to things other than
buildings, e.g. parks?
