[Tagging] Simple Indoor Tagging

I've been thinking recently about simplified indoor tagging. I've made the
next picture:


We have two shops and three entrances, and it would be nice to know which
entrances lead to which shops. Full indoor tagging would mean that we
should draw rooms for both shops, but what if an average mapper doesn't
want to draw all rooms for all shops? Would it be OK to tag the red lines
as indoor=corridor?

I'll be looking at this proposal a bit more, but for now it looks great.
