Most of which don't apply to genuine community centres.

This, and what you said elsewhere

simply makes no sense.

By that logic _everything with more than one person in it_ is a 
"community centre" - the House of Commons in London, the European 
Parliament, the UN in New York...

The actual usage at

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:community_centre was written by 
the OSM equivalent of an "architecture astronaut".  I'm sure they meant 
well, but the results are not pretty.
