some bus shelters are limited to a plastic plate,
it would be wrong to have a tag building on them.
while others are real little buildings without doors
on those, a mapper can voluntarily and consciously add a tag building.

I see no added value if iD auto-add a building tag.
in some case, it 'll be wrong.
the meaning of a self-added tag without the user's request will be a 
meaningless, the only thing we could say is "the user used iD",
this is already implicit with the tag created_by=iD
