[Tagging] Forest parcel with other landcover (scrub, scree…): how to map?

I think there can be no outcome of any discussion about landuse unless the
landcover is separated from the landuse first.

I think the only way forward is to actually do that first. The growth of
the landcover key shows that many mappers think that it's a good idea to
map landcover separately.

I would gladly see the landcover key recognised and rendered for the three
main values.
Only then, discuss the main landuse key values and modifyers again.

Else, we're just repeating the same discussion over and over.
