a caliper demonstrating verifiability

The verifiability of this key is disputed. Please see the discussion on the talk page. Please do not remove this message until the dispute is resolved.

With a building:condition=* tag, it can be documented how good the condition of the original building is. This tag has been suggested for castles but it can it be used for other buildings as well.

It's in use although it seems that there was never a discussion or proposal.
