Ok .. now I have it.. sorry for not seeing it in the first place...

That problem still exists for other OSM features .. as per Markus reply 
with the suggested (proposed) relation

Also note the other proposal


I don't see how the problem can be addressed by the simple value of the 
proposed reception_desk .. particularly as it is a problem/solution for 
other things too?

Double entry does not appeal to me either .. more work. A relation that 
takes the values from the relation to the tagged features sounds good. 
Would need to avoid over writing any tagged values that all ready exist 
(eg opening hours for reception may be different from the main office .. 
you may still ring the office when reception is closed.) I don't see 
that addressed by either the above proposals? (That would provide for 
separate phone numbers too .. Gate 1, Gate 3 etc. Oh and a 'goods dock' 
(or similar wording)).

Nice question/problem ... but not solvable by this proposed tag:value?
