I have some questions:
according to the proposal,

"This is for complexes who's primary purpose is the citizens interaction
with government agents "
What do you propose for government offices which are not or rarely
accessible by citizens?

What about courthouses? I think it would be helpful, to define also the
term "government", because you explicitly include legislative bodies, what
would be seen very strange e.g. in Germany (where the term "government" is
restricted to the executive bodies).

I also dislike the idea to encourage people tagging stuff as
"building=industrial", I think we should encourage them to be more
explicit, e.g. building=production_hall, or building=warehouse, etc. (the
same goes for building=retail, commercial)

On a side note, I am somehow astonished by my fellow countrymen that they
haven't yet introduced second level of industrial, something like
"light_industrial", as the German law knows 2 main types landuse where in
English zoning these seem both to be covered by "industrial":
"Industriegebiet" and "Gewerbegebiet".
