And the natural=tree enters in conflict with the landuse=orchard documentation:

Merging both solutions would resutl in something like:

tree=oak               // the common name
name="the name of the individual specimen"

I could accept the  "might be useful temporarily" from Tobias but not
being documented in the wiki (like the "fixme").
Unfortunately, the landuse=orchard use a plural for the key and for
the value, e.g. trees=oaks which is also strange.
For consistency, I would like to adopt the same tags for natural=tree
and landuse=orchard
Also, can we avoid the spaces and capitals like in other tags in a finite set ?

I also found a related key formal documentation about "taxon":
which deprecates "species" and replaces "genus" by "taxon:genus".
Again more inconsistencies in our documentation...
