I don't think we need a civic subkey in landuse. When I see the
growing list, it will finally generate very small landuse polygons in
OSM. This is not the intend of the OSM "landuse". We put "tax",
"immigration" or "legislative" into the buildings where these services
are. Otherwise, it is endless. We could create a subkey for
"landuse=residential" with "residential=home" or "residential=garage"
or "residential=toilets_in_the_garden"
