please don't. This will create problems with "not so perfect" tagged 

Examle here:
amenity 	embassy
consulate 	honorary_consul
contact:email 	chiang-mai at hk-diplo.de
country 	DE
diplomatic 	consulate
name 	German Honorary Consulate
name:de 	Honorarkonsul der Bundesrepublik Deutschland
office 	diplomatic

It seems to have already some tags indicating this is a consulate.
Maybe here simply the amenity=embassy is wrong and should be removed. 
Automatically re-tagging as embassy will be wrong.
I think this requires a case-by-case analysis of the existing tags, 
maybe checking the name to decide what kind of feature it is.
