it is not obvious (e.g. all retail facilities are companies as well, but are tagged with landuse=retail). Frankly, landuse tagging is not working very well in general for all areas that don't follow the separation of function paradigm, an idea of the 30ies/40ies (see charta of Athens, le Corbusier), which wasn't acted accordingly before and which got disputed also at least since the 1980ies (e.g. New Urbanism, a conservative retro movement of which besides other the Prince of Wales is a big fan, and which being more than 30 years old isn't quite "new" any more). We should likely introduce more values to account for different realities than the North American / modernist one.
