+1 I don't think landuse=mixed is very useful.

While you could tag multiple uses semi-colon seperated, or even using
relations, I doubt that would help much more since it would end up a
blob of mixed colours, that is if all permitations are rendered.

It might be best to tag the overall area only with the major type of
landuse, and then tag individual buildings as
building=commercial/retail/industrial as an exception, and if you want
to go to the micro mapping level this is where tagging
shop/office/amenity would be useful...
