While orchard=meadow_orchard is the most used way of tagging a meadow
orchard (2 748 uses), there are also 668 uses of the other subtag
meadow=meadow_orchard. That means that people don't agree that the orchard
is more important than the meadow.

Compared to landuse=meadow_orchard (48 uses), the two subtags certainly
only have such a high usage because they render, while
landuse=meadow_orchard doesn't.

In my opinion, high usage doesn't guarantee that the tagging is sensible.
