IMHO there is no "landuse" inside another landuse (at least for the
"true" landuses which are the landuses by man. If we use
landuse=forest to indicate trees they might also be stacked). A
rooftop park IMHO is not about landuse but is a part of the building.
Landuse is about the use of _land_ (and therefore is at ground level).
You should not cut a hole in the outer polygon because if the garden
on top of the building influences the landuse it will influence it for
the whole plot.
