Assigning a name=* to a landuse=* area is IMHO a bit strange anyway,
because the landuse is not the thing that has a name - in which case,
some of these might be better described by office=* + name=* (in
addition to the landuse area that might cover a larger area than the
office, or several offices with different names).
