I agree that a formalization of industrial subtags would be really
desirable. There are many different kind of things that get this same
landuse property, e.g. warehouses, production facilities, logistical
infrastructure (ports, distribution centres, ...).

For the German context (but likely also for other places), there should be
also a distinction for "light industry" (Gewerbe).

Then it seems strange we don't have yet a standardized list of typical top
level categories (e.g. automotive, textile, semiconductors, electronics,
energy, machinery, mining, ...)
