Many beginning mappers forget to square or round their buildings and it takes a lot of time for other mappers to clean this. iD could propose, as soon as the building key is selected, to square or round the buildings.

I'm working on an orthogonal drawing mode that will make it much faster to draw square buildings. I'll extend it to round buildings too (like for huts or other shelters) sometime later, if I can come up with a reasonable UI for them.
see #528

From my experience with teaching JOSM and it building tool plug-in, beginners may totally skip the building school, even if you taught them more than once about it and the plugin is installed on their computer. I think you will not prevent the un-squared issue with people using only the polygon drawing tool.
