yes, clearly for Tokyo we would need a 3D model to get to an adequate detailed representation. Fortunately there are only 0.3% of the world's population and much fewer percent of the surface, so that for the moment we'll focus on the rest of the world and live with a compromise there ;-)

Besides this I bet the Ferris wheel atop the train station with the roller coaster going through is kind of an extreme exception even for Tokyo ;-) 
There are a few extreme buildings and situations also in other parts of the world, I remember seeing a project for a library tower with a highspeed train crossing it (mostly for the spectacular effect, don't think it makes a lot of sense). For the moment I'd rather focus on mapping easier stuff and augment the coverage for areas where we already know how to do it, in the end, the exact way a roller coaster takes is micromapping at its finest but doesn't make the map really more useful.
