> I believe the key phrase is "single-use" in the sentence you cite. That is, for instance, if you have a building that is a café (tagged as building=yes) with a node inside it with the details of the café (name=Rick's Cafe; amenity=cafe), then you should move the tags from the node to the area and eliminate the node.
It is commonly done but I would not recommend this.

It is causing problems because there is no good way to distinguish whatever tags apply
to building, POI or both.
