I admit there is a less serious component in this proposal, in that every
embassy, potentially, eventually, has to do with intelligence, and
obviously, secret installations are not known, unless you know about them,
usually for professional reasons, in which case you would put yourself
under serious risk, unless you are disclosing information about the
"others" (and as long as you don't know for sure that they know that you
know, you will not tell anybody anyway).

But there is also a completely serious part: many installations are known.
You can read about them in the newspaper. There are already many of these
sites mapped in OSM, although they do not use specific or uniform tagging.
I am primarily aiming at mapping these known sites.

Have a look here for one of the most prominent examples:
names in 7 languages, but landuse=government is the only tag that describes
the feature, really?
