[HOT] leisure=common (Helipad)

So the advice back to the mapper?

My opinion would be if its readily identifiable as landuse=common then map
it, but refrain from arbitrarily adding a circle tagged landuse=common
close to each small village perhaps?

Personally when I'm mapping if something like this stands out then it gets
mapped but its quite rare that I spot one.
