Is this not bad, having more (independent) information in one tag? Imagine that
person A - technocratic deaf engineer who hates music
person B - artist who loves music and does not care a bit whether it
is inside or outside or anything about buildings.
Both happen to be mappers: on cannot input the interesting
construction without adding info about music, the other cannot enter
music without construction.
Even worse for them if they want to make a map.

This sounds much, much better.
