First thing to consider would be that your intension is to map
alloments' plots.

As already mentioned this does not fit under landuse.

Second; Should/Could this tag be used besides alloments ? There is
ammenity=parking_space but I think it is the only tag describing

If you decide to only use it for alloments a simple alloment:lot=yes
would work as areas within landuse=alloment.

Lots of alloments I know have fences between the single lots so be
prepared to find lots of multipolygons as you would need one for each
lot to proper define the ref=*.
