+1, fully agree, bots, mechanical edits and imports tend to distort
the usefulness of services like taginfo.

ok for scrub, but natural=grassland (another tag I suspect comes
originally from an import of CLC) is about "grassland" which is more
then just grass growing (it is a complex ecosystem). If you cut down a
forest it will usually not become "grassland for some years" and then
forest again, it will remain a cut down forest.
