I don't see a lot of practical cases where you can reliably distinguish 
between cultivated and non-cultivated, between artificial and 
non-artificial but cannot make a more specific characterization 
according to the tagging system we have.

For naturally unvegetated areas we currently have a somewhat incomplete 
set of established tags, mostly because the vast majority of mappers 
live in regions where these are rare.  But the way to address this is 
to develop tags for specific features and not a general 'barren areas' 
tag that encompasses also several specific and well established tags we 
already have.
