I think it would help with the mess of natural=wood vs landuse=forest.
eg if I see an area of trees, I don't know whether or not it is 
"natural" or "managed". Best to just have a tag that says this land is 
covered with trees. Then you can add extra tags for how managed it is 
(if you know that), plus tag what type of trees it is, and what it is 
used for etc.

So I think a tag of something like landcover=trees would be very useful.
