The building!=* is redundant, because add does not touch existing

I added amenity=* to the polygon file, as an alternative to building=*.  
In that way, all amenities that are not otherwise translated to polygons 
will be translated into building polygons.

A nice option could be to control the areas-to-polygons translation 
directly from the style files. I wouldn't want to generate POIs for 
unnamed forest patches, for example. And I guess sometimes you could 
just want to generate the POI but no polygon.

Best regards,
