Yes, renderers normally do sane things in cases such as this.  In any 
case the actual OSM tag is irrelevant by the time it gets to the 
renderer, so landuse vs landcover makes no difference if the renderer 
handles both.

What would be a problem would be if anyone were to assume that "every 
place is part of one and only one landuse polygon" but that isn't the 
case for OSM now anyway.

Best Regards,
