building=industrial is very poor tagging (armchair level of detail), as industrial contains storage as well as production, these two would IMHO be a minimum distinction to make sense. Clearly a cement plant is a very different kind of structure than a warehouse or a sawmill or a chip production plant. If someone maps them all as industrial because they don’t care or know at the moment, that is fine, but they should not wonder if with the time these will become more refined.
