These tags has already been put forth in the landcover proposal , but
I was just pointed to  where a user complained (rightfully) that the
shape of the road on OSM mismatched the shape of the actual road.
As a consequence, I think we should add the `landuse=highway` in the
list of officially-defined tags, especially given it is already used
And encourage putting the relevant polygon inside the associatedStreet,
because that would make sense.
And potentially also add landcover=asphalt, because why not?
FTR, google maps already has a similar feature, that is visible eg. at 
What do you think about this?
