An office - such as office=government may well have a reception desk. If 
you mark both you will have an office inside an office unless you do an 
internal multipollygon .. lot of work for what maybe a single node to 
mark the location of a reception desk?

The only 'booth' I can think of to map would be an 'information booth' 
.. and that already exists .. twice over !
