My colleague Chethan played around with visualizing MS buildings in 3D:

Webmap here: https://osmlab.github.io/ms-building-import/#15.72/39.2862/-76.6135/-1.2/60

The quality is generally good, but there are spots where small
buildings are not  orthogonal like these residential areas in Orlando


Obviously, this shouldn't be imported wholesale, so I suggest to
whoever plans to do import/conflate them should review the quality of
each data.
