[Tagging] `amenity=shelter` implies `building=yes`?

I tag bus stop shelters with amenity=shelter,
shelter_type=public_transport. In Belgium they are constructions with glass
'walls' and a metal roof. I don't consider them as buildings though.


some are smaller:


I do use JOSM's buldings-tools plugin to draw them. Really convenient to
draw rectangular closed ways with the right tags on them, straight away.
