Tagging healthcare:speciality=* inside a hospital

It would be useful to know where each healthcare:speciality=* is practiced inside a big hospital with multiple buildings. I went through the wiki, and found that this tag is recommended to be put together with amenity=hospital,clinic,doctors. But that removes the useful granularity.

So how do we map this? I thought maybe the “keep it simple” principle is the best, and just add healthcare:speciality=* to a building, building:part, or anything else inside a hospital. Maybe just a node. And then add all specialities to the hospital element itself.

If a building has healthcare:speciality=*, but isn’t inside a hospital or clinic, than it’s a useless tag. It would only make sense if it was inside a hospital, clinic or doctors.

What do you think of this solution?
