Different OSM features.

A hotel (a pub) in Australia can have a bar, more than one bar, a 
restaurant, possibly more than one restaurant and may also have 
accommodation as well.

Some times these will have different contact details, open times ... all 
one operator. But different features.

A university bar, restaurant get their own entry in OSM, but they are 
part of the university. Ok, it helps that they have a wide area to 
separate then up usually. However where they cohabit the same building 
as many lecture rooms are they then less of a feature and so not to be 
mapped as separate nodes/areas?

A single shop that sells spices and art ... why not have it as 2 OSM 
features? In this particular case it is the one shop, same operator, 
contact and opening times. But spice is one side of the business, art is 
the outer side of this business.
