advertisement=sign  faces=4?
Surely, here it would be a problem to have faces=4 and not knowing if
this refered to the clock or to the sign, so probably you would have
to use layers and 2 distinct OSM objects for this one pole with clock
and sign.
Personally I am not after those smaller signs and stuff but would like
to tag huge and dominant advertising.
