I think it's useful to differentiate/subdivide areas where there are
noticeable changes in landuse: don't be too enthusiastic about lumping
stuff together. This is because it adds texture to maps, particularly
at smaller scales, and makes them more readable by people who read
maps as sequences of landmarks, rather than constructing a simplified
2D plan in their heads (ie most women).

I'm not sure this justifies a huge range of new values though: in some
ways it's better to concentrate on identifying retail and commercial
areas within residential/industrial, and so on.
