I think that is untrue. 

If this were building=yes, then it really doesn't give a clue what the structure is. 

But in the playground key, every element is a separate playground item. 

Structure is a bit ambiguous, but it does have to conform to all the different. Shapes, types, and sizes that the other taggable equipment can anchor to. 

So in the playground key, structure is the main core that other taggable pieces are anchored to. 

It is probably not practical to tag the stairs, ladders, platforms, holes, and other access points that make up the center core of large playground structures, but it should be practical to tag, by point or way, what specific equipment is anchored to it : slides, bridges, climbing frames, monkey bars, zip lines, etc.

This is better than putting a point tag for a slide or showing that there is just a slide when in fact there is a generic structure (of platforms/ steps) for the kids to  access other pieces of equipment - which is more than single slide with its line staircase. 

I would suggest that building=yes be tagged on playground=structure too.
