Thanks for a proposal!

note that location=building conflicts with
location=indoor / location=outdoor / location=rooftop
(fossil may be build into wall from outside and from inside)

The same for location=artefact.
For example fossil exhibited in museum would be both location=indoor and

Maybe use some new tag for that, extraction_state or something else?
(extraction_state is terrible, but I was not looking for a better value for long)
