So we are talking about objects which are movable but nearly do not move
and are used similar to buildings.

Instead of using key building we could use man_made or even some new one.

For the fact that these objects are movable we need an additional key
with perhaps some values.

To distinguish between self-powered or not might be useful, as well.
