Ask yourself how you'd handle a concrete soft story building and I think
the answer is clear.  And it's
also clear that building:structure is not really a good key for dealing
with concrete/masonry, and that
building:material might have been better.  But that decision was made too
long ago to change now.
Since soft story and concrete are kinda orthogonal, using
building:structure to handle both is
problematic and will only lead to another battle over semicolons.
