landuse=grass is horrible, since it describes a landcover rather than
a land use, but it's plausible for those things that aren't village

If you make an exception inside the UK for 'village_green', remember
that some of us former colonies have them too. Lots of New England
villages follow the general pattern of villages in Merrie Olde
England, and (at least historically) have a village hall, a school, a
church, and shops clustered about a village green or common. (All the
buildings in modern times may have been repurposed, but the village
green is likely still there.)
