The vote ended a while ago, but it looks inconclusive:
Personally I'd go with pedestrian rather than precinct for three reasons:
1. We call them pedestrianised roads in the UK, whilst precinct brings to mind
a central retail area or US police precincts
2. Some pedestrianised roads can be found in residential or other areas. If
it's a shopping precinct, use landuse=retail, but we shouldn't overburden the
tag with more meanings than it needs.
3. Roads that aren't pedestrianised are found in retail precincts and police
Anyway, since I count 3 votes for pedestrian, 2 for precinct, 1 for another
vote to distinguish the two and four votes with no preference stated, it
seems like we need another way to make a decision, or at least a discussion
that will lead to a clearer vote.
The struggle against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting
