I've tagged a lot of Regelbau in Norway over the last year and have expanded the selection of tags in the category military=bunker. So far I've put the information about regelbau in the "description=*" tag.
I think it may be better to use this as a kind of sub-category like "bunker_design=*"; "bunker_design=regelbau" + "regelbau=*" to futureproof it a bit, so it can be used for other designs than regelbau without adding another category of tags.
Like this example:
- I think adding adding the bunker_design tag is completely unnecessary, even for futureproofing. All it will do is add another layer of tags. Moving the regelbau tag to regelbau_bunker_design or similar might be a good idea though. What do you think about that?

How do you properly map civilian bunkers? The only thing I can really think of, is using
Civilian air raid shelters are still around in some areas and they're not really a military object. I've recently found old maps and floor plans from the 40's, when the bunkers in question have been planned. I confirmed two of those are still there, and I'd like to map them. However, those were purely civilian air raid shelters, with airlocks, emergency power, and rooms for storage and bunks, but they were not for any sort of military use. They were not built by the military either.
I'd suggest using
