I'm surprised that automated conversion is discouraged on the wiki page
in this case. Seems like simple 1:1 objects mapping. Could we make mass
edition for this scheme?

OSM ecosystem is highly distributed, so there's no way to reach
everybody. But the last time we asked to remove landuse=farm on this
list, it worked very effective (removing ~300.000 uses in just 2 months).
