building=yes is a standard way to mark building without specifying its
type. Editors wishing to specify building type would (directly or
indirectly, for example using StreetComplete) look through buildings
tagged as building=yes.
building=building is an unexpected way to mark building without
specifying its type and therefore retagging this duplicate to
building=yes would improve tagging without any information loss.
It would also (as an useful byproduct) remove this tag from popular
values at https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/building#values <https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/building#values> and
ensure that it will not become proposed as a valid value by an iD
editor (at this moment threshold for building value is 14514 uses).
Between 4000 and 5000 objects are expected to be edited. See
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/building=building#map <https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/building=building#map> for a
Changeset would be split into small areas to avoid continent-sized
bounding boxes. As this tag is on buildings it is not expected that any
object will force bounding box to be extremely large.
