Depends if I said I will meet someone at drinking water spot xyz or I'm 
just looking for some water.

So that's the quality of data you are fine with in OSM? Why do we even 
tag house numbers then? Finding the right street and then looking at the 
numbers is even easier than this, don't even have to get out of the car.

Then why isn't this addressed at all in the proposal? Relations which 
could handle this are not mentioned once.

And again how would you name it if it was just one of multiple 
recpetions desks for one facility. Facility name => operator=* name=Gate 
1? So if the reception has no name then name= stays empty? Do I use the 
plant name as operator? Or the company name?
