Thank you, Martin. This is an excellent proposal, that formalises in
OSM's tagging scheme the classical distinction between physical
( landcover) and human (landuse) geography. This will enable users to
generate a reference map  as well as a thematic map  from OSM
data. It will facilitate more rigorous scientific uses of OSM in the
fields of biology, geography and geology, and it will enable
scientists to contribute their data to OSM, as well as the use of OSM
as a scientific tool.
