agree that who wants could map furniture as well, but that would not be "amenity" and I would not care about such a tag and it would not be the main tag for the reception function

it can be easily decided by the mapper what makes most sense for the actual situation

there are more than 30 times reception_area tags compared to reception_desk, but both numbers are low

> d) I personally know of two places where the reception is a long way from the main entrance (Australia). Someone else also know of a reception a long way from the main entrance (Africa I think). So not always at the main entry, and in that situation mapping it is very usefull.

+1, if someone thinks a tag is not needed he should not vote, because voting is about a concrete tag and which tag is best to describe something
