We already have an "amenity=post_office" tag.  I note that the wiki page 
for that tag includes an operator subtag, for if the post office is 
operated by a private company rather than a government agency. The 
United States Postal Service is quasi-governmental; the US Constitution 
calls for its establishment, and there are laws that apply specifically 
to it, but it is self-funded by selling its services, not funded by the 
Federal government.
