Tagging a node with "reception_desk" is not the given use case.

The  reception_desk proposal was about helping a person find the reception
area in a larger space
such as a campground or conference centre.  A large space may have several
information boards,
a dozen doors, and but usually just one "main" starting place for
visitors.  In a hotel, this is also known
as reception, and it's the place you check in to rooms and pay.   At a
conference like SToM, it's the place
you say your name and pick up your ticket.
