The point is that landuse is a broad and generic meaning and is not to
be meant to have subtyping or "more specific tagging". It should be a
very rough "what is this area beeing used for".

Later you can tag much more specific on top of that like amenity=school
or the like.

IMHO using subtyping or having a subtype of commercial is abuse of the
landuse key.
