makes clear that at least some funeral halls are distinguishable from

This proposal reports that some members of German OSM community think differently,
I am not sure why it is enough to make proposal to encourage to change
all building=funeral_hall to building=yes

"It is therefore proposed to instead use the combination:

Even if building is not recognizable specifically as funerall hall
and some more generic tag would be fitting (building=hall? building=civic?
building=public?) it does not mean that
1) nonspecific building=yes is best
2) there is currently funeral_hall there, so amenity=funeral_hall
should not always be added

> building tags and amenity/shop/... tags are for different purposes
> building=church is building constructed as a church that now can
> be a place of worship, warehouse, unused or something else but
> retained building structure typical to a church
> amenity=place_of_worship is a place where regular worship is conducted
> - it may be in a church, in open area, in former fish market, in building constructed
> as a warehouse
> Not sure whatever there are building where their structure makes them
> recognizable as funeral halls, but in case where such building exist
> correct tagging is building=funeral_hall (potentially also amenity=funerall_hall)
