My initial reaction is that landuse=allotments is clear and immediately
understandable, but landuse=plot is not. One might wonder whether this
is USA usage, or a building plot or ... .

What about a subtag? Or maybe allotments becomes a relation with plot as
a role?

Removing an existing tag (allotments) from am initial survey and then
adding multiple plots on a later more detailed survey makes me

Just an initial reaction: I haven't given this more than a minute or two
of thought...
