So if 
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

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?
