I tend to disagree with you. Landuse should be exclusive by definition. As
someone pointed out before in a separate message, this is trying to be a
work around the fact that to some extent landuse is broken in some cases.
We would like to avoid having two super imposed landuse as much as possible.
As we get something more and more complex, we will end up with priority
rules over landuse which is I believe is not desirable.
We could be tagging for the renderer and using layer=*, but that's not an
adequate solution, not even close.
This particular case is trying to solve the issue that we see in France with
military bases with buildings, forest, fields, etc... inside a military
Anyway some of the comments you are making are making sense but it is just
relying on the renderer to get it right.
