from what I understand, landuse is to mark a larger area that has
multiple entities of a certain type:
* landuse=industrial - multiple different industrial companies at
* landuse=allotments - area with a lot of gardens
* landuse=residential - multiple residents living there
(But if there are a couple of doctors and restaurants mixed in, it is
still residential area.)
What I'm trying to say: No need to create a landuse area for each
building or single tourist attraction.
If you like to mark a larger hospital area, why not use a site relation?
