That is the same reasons that I find this a good tag, whether you are type a 
or type b, you will know it is a bandstand and tag it with that. Easy. 

The type a-mapper could add more tags regarding architectural style, the type 
b-mapper could add more tags regarding music-style. If they do not want or 
know anything more, the tag bandstand is enough.

If per chance they do not know it is called a bandstand I guess there are no 
problems if they map it with pavilion or music_venue

(As a generalist I would of course prefer if there where a tagging scheme for 
all pavilions and music_venues out there. building=pavilion pavilion=bandstand 
and music_venue=open-air_scene, music_venue:size=small or something like that)
