Following on from the discussion on "Wrong use of landuse=village_green 
- but what else to use?" and subsequently bring up the wiki on 
landuse=grass I have made a major change to landuse=grass to what I 
think it should be!!!!

Some will be upset by this .. fine. However I think they are mapping a 
land cover ..not a land use.

For instance green areas in roundabouts, highway medians  ... are used 
by the highway ... and should be tagged similar to railways ... 

If the grassed area needs to be tagged then tag WHAT IS THERE ... 
landcover=grass (or natural=grass) ... the land is use in a highway 
situation to provide safety for the highway users .. it is not for the 
use of the grass!
