A lot of buildings have to be building=yes, for lack of anything better.
you already lost the battle with building=house, which is too firmly
entrenched to change.

BTW, what do you think this building is?
It's a private house.  But it used to be a chapel, and that's how you'd
describe it
if you wanted to use it as a landmark in navigational instructions.

Although it's not always the case, there are times when the building type
is clear
and that information is useful.  If we were starting from scratch, having
building:type=* would be a better idea, but we can't do that.
