landuse=residential should be used to map area where people live. This
does not include other areas such as parks, schools, cemeteries etc. I
try & trace around them. If they're totally inclosed then I set up a
multi-polygon relation & add an inner relation to these items.
Individual areas can be as big or small as required, from a whole city
down to a single property.
landuse=residential should not be sub tagged with place=* or name=*.
For these the appropriate boundary= & admin_level= should be used.
Personally, I decide whether to include roads within a residential area
based on it's overall width. If it's dual laned, contains grass verges
then I'll probably trace around it.
