In my part of the world, this type of seat has become increasingly common
the past 20 years.  In larger shelters they are long enough to sleep on but
wide enough, so a tag indicating bench length as an indicator of it being
designed to discourage sleeping wouldn't work.  I agree with you that these
are also uncomfortable to sit on.

Either we come up with very specific tags for ever particular variation
of every type of object that could be used to deter sleeping (or
skateboarding, or urination, or whatever) or we come up with a
a general tag (hostile_architecture=yes) to indicate there is
something abnormal.
