For those examples, that is OK.  But those are along the lines of "this
tag applies to this particular situation, there are similar situations where
a different tag should be used."  In the case of landcover=hedge it's
more of "This is a bad tag.  Use this instead." (I paraphrase, you'd
phrase it more diplomatically) and should be in its own section right
at the very start.  With a warning icon.  Because once you know that,
there is no point reading the rest of it.
