Frederik, The tagging and the wiki have been that way for many years. I share your discomfort, since I think of a BB as a different thing from a guesthouse. But over the years I've ended up using this tagging since it's documented and appears

Re: [Tagging] path vs footway

2014-11-04 Thread Dan S
One of the most important differences is that for highway=footway, we know that pedestrians are allowed (unless other tags alter the access explicitly). With highway=path we can't always assume that pedestrians are allowed along it. I know there are routing systems that care about this difference.

Hi - It doesn't make sense to me to have a specific tag for fuel and convenience. Maybe I misunderstand you. I would say, keep copying the addresses! There are lots of situations where multiple co-located items have the same address, e.g. a small post office inside a supermarket. If you invented

Hi, No big objections from me, sounds useful. However it occurs to me that it would be useful to have some way of indicating _what_ it is the reception for. For example, if it was part of a site relation*, then a role like role=reception would connect it to the larger entity in a meaningful way.

All building=* on nodes is fine. As others have pointed out, it is often necessary in HOT aerial mapping when we have low-resolution imagery to work from. Also, for humanitarian purposes there are serious uses for node-only buildings, for estimating the population or the population distribution
