Sounds logical given the new tagging. I find no faults with the 
office=diplomatic page, kudos to Lyx for putting it together, very 
thorough. Embassies are (or should be) a 100% subset of 
office=diplomatic. I think you are wise in not suggesting mass addition 
of  diplomatic=embassy, I also have come across instances in the past 
where they are actually consulates. The only thing I can think of is 
whether there are still any cases where the location is actually an 
ambassadorial residence, (I am uncomfortable with having them there, my 
wife is an ambassador) ... but I think the most sensible thing is to 
deal with them on a case-by-case after putting in place this more 
rigourous tagging schema.
