Now that we have established that =staircase and =main are not that 
different, I'd still want to know what exactly is there reason why you 
think =staircase is worse than =main since you seem to indicate I should 
use =main instead of =staircase?

And please please don't bring up non-sense about zillions of values in 
entrance=* because of this particular value :-), it's only one value and 
this particular value is rather common too. And if some data user doesn't 
like it, it would be extremely trivial to map it to =main (or, in other 
words, if that's too much work/trouble I doubt they could rely on OSM 
dataset at all given its "quality heterogeneity" ;-)).
