ATMs mapped separately from their bank

I noticed some ATMs being mapped as a separate node from their bank (two nodes very close together, one is amenity=bank and the other is amenity=atm).

In at least one such case, that I have personal knowledge of, the ATM definitely "belongs" to the bank, and it seems strange to map it as a separate node.

What do you think about merging these cases into amenity=bank atm=yes?

P.S this is the query I used:

<query type="node" into="banks">
	<has-kv k="amenity" v="bank"/>
	<bbox-query {{bbox}}/>
<query type="node">
	<around radius="10" from="banks"/>
	<has-kv k="amenity" v="atm"/>
	<bbox-query {{bbox}}/>
	<recurse type="down"/>

Re: ATMs mapped separately from their bank

Actually it's a recommended way to map separate features. Same, sometimes, applies for toilets, for example.

When you map it as separate node it can have its own working hours and accessibility, which are usually different from bank itself.
If ATM is inside bank and not accessible outside of bank working hours - then it can be mapped as atm:yes
