As I suggested this, as a clarification: I wasn't  suggesting to add
this to the building outline, because as you say this wouldn't actually
work, but simply adding a short way within the building outline with the
interpolation information. I agree this is a hack, but it has the
advantage that if there is agreement and support for an on the building
tagging down the road, this can be moved to such a tagging without
having to resurvey.
