a caliper demonstrating verifiability

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

This tag combination is sometimes used to tag inexisting, only proposed buildings. In addition to all problems related to mapping proposed contructions this tagging scheme is creating problems for data consumers as Key:building have highly varied values and it is unreasonable to expect special handling of this value.
