It was a stacking comment.  The renderers seem to implicitly stack 
buildings on top
of land use, so it won't created the desired results.

The question is: should it be sufficient to imply that a landuse polygon 
wholly inside of another land use polygon belongs "on top"? Or is it 
really necessary to cut a hole in the outer polygon?

The existing "layer <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Layer>=x" tags 
are in fact active in mapnik at least: one can stack land use.
I feel new mappers will be much more likely to get layers right, rather 
than relations/multipolygons.
