> "this IS residential landuse."  (Not COULD BE, but IS).  Yes, this land might be "natural" now, including being "treed," but I could still build a patio and bbq there after perhaps cutting down some trees, it is my residential land and I am allowed to do that, meaning it has residential use, even if it is "unimproved" presently.  
It is a residential property, not a residential landuse.

> These facts do add to the difficulty:  OSM doesn't wish to appear to be removing property rights from residential landowners (by diminishing landuse=residential areas)
Are there people somehow believing that edits in OSM affect property rights and may remove them?
That is ridiculous.

>  but at the same time, significant portions of these areas do remain in a natural state, while distinctly and presently "having" residential landuse.  
For me and in my region (Poland) it would be treated as a clearly incorrect mapping.
