Tag PAPI as four separate nodes?

On airports there are so called PAPI which consist of four lights next to each other. They help the pilots to find out whether they are currently too high or too low.

Should these four lights making up the PAPI be mapped as four separates nodes? Or does this qualify more like “One feature, one OSM Element”?

I’ve seen both versions mapped in OSM und want to document a canonical version in the Wiki (Tag:navigationaid=papi) (it currently says: Set a node in the middle of the system but it doesn’t advice not to set four separate nodes explicitly).

An earlier discussion of this topic didn’t come up with a clear advice.
