by default, a building is permanent :)
you can use temporary=yes

no, it is :

it is done by geometry of the building, not a tag.
I found building:shape with a very low usage.
Maybe you 'll make a proposal to a proposal to clarify this

the best would be to put a entrance node on the building outline
add a step_count with the number of step (also 0)
add a incline=up/down

add a way between the road and the entrance
if it is a staircase highway=steps + incline=up/down
if it is not a staircase, highway=path + incline=up/down
