No - Amenity and landuse intermix - Basically for me an amenity is
always within a landuse. A landuse is a more general distinction
of rough land usage whereas amenity is a concrete thing.

Shifting an amenity into landuses confuses these two object classes, a rough
classification of land usage, and a very distinct thing.

I still stand by my opposition.

And while looking through the wiki history of
landuse/landuse=residential and amenity=school i found this:


Which is another issue like this.

I'd like to have a very clear hierarchy in which objects exist which
makes validation a lot easier.
