It is at least debatable, I know there are some people who love long structured tags, although this idea is in a minority in Osm tagging, most people do not use tags like this. It doesn’t seem necessary in this case to use a structured name, I would not expect other “soft_storey”s in different domains.

The bigger problem could be verifiability. OSM is about crowd sourced geodata while this property seems to require expert capabilities and additional information you cannot get non-destructively on the ground?
