I disagree with this. People don't live/reside in parks.
By your logic whole countries such as the UK could be an area tagged as
grass/fields because that's the "predominant landuse is". You have to
map to a certain level of detail. Mapping the difference between a
residential estate & a golf course is, IMO, the bare minimum.
Following your example, how would you produce a map that showed just
where domestic housing was or calculate the area taken by this housing.
