I am aware that it is rarely done (5% of all landuses have a name tag), but 
my suggestion is to deprecate this. It makes it impossible to add more detailed landuse, as this would exclude these areas from the „housing project“/named area.

landuse should be about the usage of land, not imply other concepts like housing projects.

the tag for shopping-centers is shop=mall

landuse=retail is for land primarily used for retail, and can contain any number of malls and shops, just like several landuse=retail could together describe a single mall.
