With your logic, if a building has underground floors, they should be
counted into the height, don't you think so?

Anyway, wiki isn't clear on this at all, there's obviously some work to do.
It's only clear with ele being elevation of ground over sea level, even if
it's tagged on a node like man_made=tower.

The top of the highest point of the structure (top of the blade in the
highest position). That's my proposal.
