+1, I don’t see why we would need area=yes on boundary=protected_area

It also seems weird that a node is suitable according to the wiki:

but this is a general semantic problem we have with all boundaries (a boundary is a linear object, what it delimits is an area, which is somehow implicit through the boundaries, but when we describe the area inside with tags we add these directly to the boundary object, rather than to an area object with the boundaries as limits).

Anyway, area=yes seems superfluous as we are always speaking about areas in this context, even if they are represented as a node.
