Both 'amenity=public_building' and 'building=public' are problematic,
but for different reasons. Merging their wiki representations mixes the
arguments against both, and makes improvements even more difficult.

'amenity=public_building' is an unspecific use of the amenity key, and
should be replaced with a more specific value.

'building=public' describes some form of accessibility using a key
that should describe the architectural type of a building.
