What about when a business is owned by one entity, but operated on
their behalf by another, in a building that they lease from yet
another one --- does "owner=" refer to the business, or the building?

If people feel a need to tag things like this, I have no objection,
but I do think it's getting to the edge of what really belongs on the
OSM database.
