While mapping a medieval village I have found some features I would like to map
but am not aware of established tags for them.
These features are generally parts of building facades, for example
- inscriptions, often initials of former proprietors or restoration dates.
Sometimes these are

Looking through the current list of documented office values I came across so
that really sound odd to me, e.g.
wouldn't this be much better suited for the amenity tag?

First of all, thanks for this discussion guys!
In addition to Martin I think Wolfgang has the best way to tag a
building and what's inside of it. So let's assume you want to tag a very
cheap restaurant inside an old Quonset hut the tags will be:
amenity=restaurant, building=quonset_hut and
The proposal for amenity=courier was rejected, so going on with another
Tagging mailing list
I have created a restriction (mandatory route) where if vehicles coming from
way must go through a section of a trunk route before leaving it. Assume that
an only_straight_on relation has been created with from A-C, via C-K-E (C-K-E
is a single way but K is connected to D and J) and

I don't see how going from "typology" you conclude it's strictly about
form. Typology is about types, not saying with respect to what.
When you look at top building values in Taginfo, it's clear to me

industrial, school and so on), with

you could also consider using semicolon separated multivalues like "19;21"
It could be argued that this tagging scheme is generally not well defined,
I need some input how to tag nature reserves. For most ones in Sweden
it is easy, the CC0 source material have a field with the IUCN class
but around 10% are classified as: "areas that can not be classified by
the IUCN system".
A natural reserve in Sweden can be created in:
