True, you wouldn't want to try and tag that. However certain types of
agriculture like vineyards are much more permanent.

So maybe it is appropriate to leave them as landuse:


Presumably a basic distinction between pasture, crops, grapes, and any
kind of tree (orchards, hazelnuts...) would be meaningful and not
change too quickly. Even that might not be maintainable though, since
by definition agricultural areas have low population density (and very
low OSM mapper density...)
