No, as i have written and explained this is fundamentally wrong.  But it 
is a nice summary of the base dogma of the "everything is a polygon" 
fraction in OSM.

What i find most amazing is that you try to uphold this dogma even where 
it is obvious how it clashes with reality like in the bench example.

Well - i cannot do anything about it if you are not ready to question 
your assumtions.
