One (not too important IMHO) issue is that you already have many of
these building types already in the database. Some of which actually
have an address (for whatever reason - postal services are very
"interesting", cf. thread on "Street and Sub-Street in Address
Tagging"), although we imply they don't "require" an address/have
noaddress=yes assumed.
I don't think this is a big concern though and support your idea
because we lack better alternatives for this kind of information at
the moment.
