222 says taginfo. There is also a proposal from 2013
I am inclined to document that as in use.

No, I would consider that bad tagging. Somebody rendering the 3D shape of a town is not interested 
in the leisure tag.

Building describes the building typology, leisure the usage. So, if a church is converted for a 
sports_hall, it is still building=church.
