after a discussion about retagging road maintenance facilities in
Germany as landuse=depot i got a bit annoyed by the IMHO abuse of
the landuse= key with the depot value.

It seems this landuse value is only proposed but the wiki page makes
people think this is an established tag people should use. 

Arguments of mine that this is a refinement of a commercial/industrial
landuse and should be an man_made or amenity have all been brought 
up in the carto rendering requests and thus these requests have all been 

Still the wiki page for landuse=depot exists and attracts more usage
or as i would say "abuse" ...

Is there any consensus on landuse=depot to be either established,
removed or brought to voting?
