Hi Rob,

We already had this discussion some time ago. There wasn't a complete
consensus on the matter, but here is how I tag now:

One amenity per building: the addr: tags and the amenity tags on the
building outline. One or multiple entrance nodes on the outline.

Several amenities per building, but each with it's own entry: addr: on the
building outline, multiple entrance nodes on the outline, amenity tags on
the entrance nodes.

Several amenities per building with more than one amenity per door: addr:*
on the building outline, several entrance nodes along the outline, amenity
tags on extra nodes near the entrances inside the building outline.

Several addresses per building: addr:* tags on entrance nodes along the
building outline.

Some also prefer to put amenities and building into a site relation.

Pros: scales the solution with the complexity of the problem.
Cons: not very consistent, renders poorly
