I understand that, but if a program is given a single way, it has no
understanding of surrounding geometry (e.g. alot renderers look at things
one by one)

(playing devils advocate here)
but then why do `building=bungalow` and `building=semidetached_house` exist?

Bungalows can be seen from `building:levels=1`.

Semi-detached houses can be seen from geometry like you said.
