that doesn't mean much, as iD developers, at least in the past, ignored the
comunity decisions in more than one instance. It could be an indice to look
if this has distorted the stats though (i.e. see when it was introduced as
a preset for iD).

Looking at usage numbers, it seems correct to discourage leisure for this
tag, as it was introduced in 2009 by an import, started to grow organically
from 2011 to 2015 and is stalling since then, while landuse was introduced
pre 2008 and does not show any "import steps", and it is at more than
double the usage currently.

Still, from a systematic point of view, I would consider leisure the better
tag, if this is not meant as a property but as a feature, similar to other
comparable leisure features like pitches, stadia, swimming pools, sports
centres, most of which have usage numbers orders of magnitude higher than
recreation grounds, and which all use the leisure key.
