Yep, coming together nicely :-)

I don't know about that?

There are some extensive Police areas, rather than just buildings - as
mentioned, the Academy, driver training area, Mounted Police stable, which
would usually include paddocks & so on.

They would all be tagged as police=facilities, but how would they render,
as they wouldn't / shouldn't have the Police icon on them? I suppose you
could stretch things a bit to make them a University, racetrack &
farmland!, but not *really* appropriate!

They could all also be tagged as the landuse=government which was discussed
a few months ago (which I think is what Martin was suggesting?)
