The problem i see with that "multipurpose" value is that it give no
information and could be misused for other tower:type (like
defensive;observation) which should not be rendered as communication_tower.
Thus i would propose to render the "communication_tower" based on the
height > 250 m (arbitrary value for example) when in combination with
tower:type=communication (even when others tower:type are mentioned like in
your example : "tower:type=communication;observation"). I don't know if it
is feasible for the renderer to identify the presence of only one value in
the tag ? Otherwise i suppose it would need to put all alternative
available... :s
