We should map the most intensive landuse, from a map user standpoint. So a
mixed-use area of tall buildings would be retail. There might be condos and
apartments on the 20th to 40th floor, offices on the 10th 20th floors, a
garage for cars from floor 2 to 9, but the first couple of levels are
retail, therefore it is just as interesting as a 1 or 2 Storey retail
building for map users.

I believe one of the wiki pages already suggests mapping the “highest” /
most valuable landuse. In other words, retail > commercial > industrial /
residential.
