Landcover now has about 170 000 usage count.

Still growing rapidly despite not yet being rendered on OSM Carto.

I would say that is enough reason to start renderin landcover on OSM Carto
and other renderings.
Once it renders, usage of landcover=[trees|grass|scrub] will grow even
faster. Other values are mentioned less often, these three would do nicely
for now.

Many small areas of grass, trees and scrub within residential areas can be
tagged as landcover patches, without breaking up the landuse or tagging
landuse over landuse.
