[Tagging] Residential gardens: deprecate leisure=garden, suggest alternative

If there would be a consensus on only using landuse=* tags on bigger
surfaces (and not for single houses), the use of

residential=garden

or

garden=residential

should be possible without it being in a landuse=residential area. In
Belgium, the spatial planning is worthless and there are lots of buildings
(normal houses, not farms) that stand in the middle of a farmland ( e.g.:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.935717&mlon=3.066187&zoom=18&layers=M).
This is mostly due to the two WWs we got, the rebuilding of houses and
streets went fast, not in a natural way and most of the time with a lot of
communication errors.

I do not have a strict opinion whether it should be residential=garden or
garden=residential, but as the first one sounds like a specialisation of
landuse=residential, I think that garden=residential should be better.

regards,
Sander
