From other mappers I heard that the wiki should describe what mappers _do_ map, not what they _should_ map.
For landuse=grass there was some debate over the change of the wiki by a user, replacing what we do map by what that user thinks we should map.

For landuse=village_green the practical use of that tagging is highly different (but not everywhere) from what the wiki states.
Hence I have _added_ a few lines to the wiki, explaining that the use of village_green on the map, differs from what’s in the wiki.
