We should be very clear about whether the land is owned by the public, or
used by the public. Landuse is a property for the current use, so
landuse=governmental (or whatever is chosen) should indicate used by the
government. This could be private property (and rented), or public property.

WRT to Joseph's comment about "municipal, statal and federal", I would
welcome adding a property for the level (if a generic level is chosen for
landuse), maybe "admin_level" would suit best?

How will we deal with uses shared by bodies of different levels in the
hierarchy, e.g. a site which is used together by federal and state entities
(e.g. on different building levels, or in cooperation).
