Yes, bit mixed. I would think
building=military - mandatory, with
military=barracks - mandatory on the same way/node as the above building.
landuse=military mandatory on the surrounding area, how big that area
is depends on the military base. A one building barracks would still be
a military area?
I would not refer to the past, just when this tag was redefined, reduces
confusion by not mentioning the past definition.
And yes, I would simply delete the confusing test.
