So I suppose in osm this object should be a relation with different building parts as ways.
That is so, but certain tags a duplicated through this structure.

namein different languages.
- There is a node marking the tip of the tower which is also containing the

nameand a wikipedia link.
Mapnik won't show any label because of a relation tagged with
name. At least not for
place_of_worship so a visitor will assume that the name is missing and add it to the structures he can see clearly on the map. Or he'll do it intentionally for the renderer.

But then I realised this is the map that I was working on 😉
