Landuse is a general description of what the predominant landuse is. 
Hence if a residential subdivision includes a community park or golf 
course, or an industrial park includes a McDonald's, you don't need to 
cut them out of the polygon.

As for including roads, I tend to include them if driveways empty out 
onto them and not onto other minor roads.
