That's about the size of it. People will most likely continue tagging
freestanding houses as "house" because, hey, it's a house. Luckily, it's
not incorrect. I can imagine a theoretical mapper wanting to retag them
as "detached" instead, and I'd tell that mapper: "Nah. Let those houses
be. They're fine."

Nb, the wiki does offer building=bungalow, and there are nearly 50k of
them out there. I'd consider bungalow a special subset of detached
(which is a special subset of house, etc.)
