I reviewed the thread and found the most convincing argument that the subtagging solution is already 
the preferred tagging in 2787 cases (according to overpass, most of them in Germany). It helps to 
prevent tag fragmentation and will not lead to crying how to render it. I also think it is the best 
option semantically.

This contrasts 48 cases of landuse=meadow_orchard, only in DE and CH.
