there are no such things as real world objects, it is all just a model of perception of the world, and whether the ground vegetation of a forest is better mapped with a different object as the trees, or together, can not be answered by counting “real world objects”. The “one thing one osm object”- rule is pointless, because the free tagging allows for infinite “things” / ways to look at the world.

The answer to primary vs. secondary depends on the question.
