Schools etc. should be represented as known object types

My question again is: What should be achieved with that? A possibility to describe the environment beyond the curb stone?
[In OSM] each feature is described with tags. A tag consists of a key and a value, e.g. highway=residential. In most cases tagging follows guidelines to describe defined features, but in general tagging is [optional] and therefore good and easy for crowd sourcing [but is still error-prone]. [...] In general there is mostly a defined way of tagging and adding additional data to the OSM database but practically there are still different ways of tagging that information. http://elib.dlr.de/102468/
