None of the buildings in any of those examples, when grouped together into a named complex, have the name of the complex - they are all named differently. There is no building named "factory" when they *all together* make a factory.

indeed the buildings are just buildings (eventually with own names, start dates and other attributes) , it's not them to put the name for the "whole" complex on. But IMHO it's neither a landuse object, it's an object with a different tag that defines it. We still need a tag for gated communities? Fine, lets introduce one.
