I am not an English native speaker, but from the dictionary reading I did not get the impression amenity is very far fetched for embassies, certainly less than for prisons.
From a data structure perspective, for certain applications (e.g. osm-carto) a “main” key must be present in order to have the object not filtered out during database import. As I believe embassies should be in our “standard set” of data, a main key is desirable.
I would see embassies as a good fit for osm amenity (indeed it is already there), they are different to other offices because of their particular status, and “office” is also not in the very core.
