You're right, the wiki does say that.  I didn't notice that when I looked
yesterday.  In which case,
barrier=hedge + area=yes is suitable for that particular example.

However, please bear in mind that the example I gave is not typical of
shrubberies.  I used it
partly because I've  been puzzling how to map it for a long while, partly
because I didn't have
a better example.  Hedges are intended to be barriers to passage (even if
they've fallen into
disrepair and are no longer effective barriers); shrubberies often permit
passage, if only
to allow the individual shrubs to be trimmed/shaped.

That said, you've convinced me that I can use barrier=hedge + area=yes to
deal with that
particular example, so I'm not inclined to pursue a reactivation of
landuse=shrubs.at this
