I'd normally class a reception as part of the larger organization it
serves, and
not worth micro-mapping.  For something like a camp site then marking the
reception is important, and it may or may not be the location where
is carried out.  But for the office of a lawyer or accountant or similar,
reception is just part of the office.

It's both.  Perhaps, with hindsight, most would agree that is sub-optimal
but that's
the way it is.  More importantly, it's been that way for long enough that
fixing it is
probably not possible.
