Look at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:amenity and tell me those 
don't have reception desks.

And you can't put them inside and amenity if it's just a node of a 
building like for example many doctors. By adding *=reception_desk to 
such a node it would be clear that someone did not just put a random 
node somewhere on the building, but that the doctor is actually there.

Also what about "receptions" at big companies, factories etc. where you 
often also have a gate. Do you just use the tag for that? Is 
reception_DESK really fitting?
