As I have been coming back to tagging recently, I noticed a lot of rural residential/alley/driveway/track roads being mapped as a “living street” in my region of Japan. 

A prolific editor (2000+ edits) is one of the mappers doing it, so I Im unsure about what is going on.  

As far as I know, “living street” is a legal definition for some roads found in Europe, and not for Japan. 

The english/Japanese “Japan Tagging” page offers no suggestion for using Living Street.

Is this an error of a single user, or is this some systemic regional tagging change that is not documented? 

either way, there is some corrections to be made.
