it is necessary for all kinds of relations.

We could discourage the use of the key "type" in favour of more
specific keys like building:type, airport:type etc. or change the
syntax of the relation-type to relation:type instead of a simple type.
Actual usage shows that type is by far most used in the context of
relations:

The only tag with more then 1% that is not a relation is "type=broad_leafed"
