Interesting idea. You'd have to hope that no architect had worked on more
than 1000 buildings though :-)  This also wouldn't work for where relations
are already used to group several building outlines together as one 'site'
(see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations/Proposed/Site), whereas
using a simple architect=* tag, you could add this to the existing relation.
