Ok. So meadow must have grass etc. But it also must be used for grazing or producing 'hay'.

And that is the part that is missing from some uses.

By placing the use first I hope to reduce the misuse and place some emphases on the land use aspect rather than the fast reader just seeing the grass reference.

Off topic, but indeed.

There are large areas of central Australia used for grazing that do not fit this 'meadow' description - nor should they,

Possibly landuse=grazing with natural=scrub or some other land cover tag could be used there.
