That was the intention. But many mappers are mapping the function of the
building, not the appearance/architecture.
e.g. building=parking, office, commercial, apartments, ... all
functional rather than architecture.
The appearance of these vary widely so mappers tend to identify the use
rather than the appearance.
Just like some map tree areas as landuse=forest with little regard to
the human use of the land.
