I can not think of any reason that we can not route this kind of data.
The issue will be that you need to separate the nodes one different
floors with a z-value and add an appropriate cost for elevators and
stairs. elevators need to include some queue time for the elevator to
arrive and then some travel time. For stairs you might want to set
different costs for going up vs down.
Otherwise it should be totally doable.
