Right. And the original proposal was to activate a protect_class=*
that was previously dormant, because nothing of 1a-6 fits the
situation. Many of these parks simply aren't created to conserve
nature, they're created to provide opportunities for a variety of
outdoor recreations.

admin_level isn't *wrong*, it just doesn't help. With or without
admin_level, there's no IUCN-defined protect_class that fits.
