Absolutely. At the very least, getting big buildings like museums, hospitals,
schools, housing estates, etc. in place wouldn't be too hard.

So far as I can tell it's still in the proposal stage:
I don't think any of them show up on mapnik, a few show up on t at h, other kinds
of building that don't use that key (like amenity=hospital) don't show up at
all and others (like amenity=school) show up without labels or much
indication of what they are on mapnik.
In other words, pretty mixed. If both mapnik and t at h supported a decent range
of buildings I'm sure the proposal would get more attention...

Some of us are doing this already ;)
