I do not have any questions but the proposal does not even mention
area:highway=* and is talking about landuse=grass which should be
avoided, anyway.

All along this is one more example of the lately used practice to start
voting after a few weeks with not well designed proposals (useful tags
but missing links, missing pictures, missing differentions etc.). At
least it seems to lead to more discussion about the issues.
