would be converted to apartments/cinema/warehouse you would change
building=church to something else?
I am dubious about your claim that thousands others map in this way.
As far as I know current use is covered by amenity=place_of_worship

Yes: visual style/construction type/etc
> Just because a building looks like how you guess a church should appear, it doesn't actually mean it is, or was ever, a church.
yes, there are church buildings that no longer contain place of worship
(and likely some cases that never contained).
Likewise there are places of worship in warehouse buildings/residential buildings etc.
BTW, would you map warehouse containing christian place of worship as
building=church ("by the sign above the door")?
Would you map
as building=church just because it has sign indicating that christian religious
services are performed inside?
