We would need 5-7 new amenity tags to cover what is already covered with landuse=*

We already define the religious buildings themselves through building=* and the POW through amenity, and the religion and denomination through their respective tags. 

We don't have landuse=supermarket, pharmacy, and mall - we have a generic Landuse that says "this is retail"

Similarly - the details of the building present (mosque, shrine, temple, church, cathedral, synagogue, etc), the religion, and denomination and what exactly is the POW are handled by other tags, just like a supermarket with building=retail, amenity=supermarket (i think), so the landuse=* is there just to generically say "this is land used by a retail facility" 

Landuse=religious generically says "this is land used by a religious facility".
