I've always thought of ele representing the lower part, which is clear for man made features like buildings or obelisks (elevation of the ground, then add height for the highest point at that spot). Now when it comes to vertical elements like cliffs, where you have ground on both ends, it admittedly becomes ambiguous, but my suggestion would be to define to use the lower end also in these cases for simplicity/uniformity.
