What does "imply the building with [...] covered=yes" mean? Does it mean 
just to map one object with leisure=pitch + covered=yes?

If I understand page key:covered correctly, covered=yes means that an 
object (the pitch) is covereed by some *other* object (the roof or 
perhaps a bridge); it does not mean that one object (the pitch) has a 
roof included in itself (and indeed a pitch cannot have a roof itself, a 
pitch is only a pitch and can only be under a roof or a bridge or so). 
The page for leisure=pitch doen't mention covered=yes and only 4.2k of 
1854.7k (=0.2%) of all pitches have a covered=* tag, and less than half 
of them (1.7k) have covered=yes.

So one could map a covered pitch with a roof of the same size as the 
pitch like:

object 1: leisure=pitch + covered=yes
object 2: building=roof

or perhaps with the problematic shortcut:

object 1: leisure=pitch + covered=yes + building=roof
(Then *assume* that the pitch is covered and not the roof)

But is covered=yes needed here? For what? What does "imply the building 
with [...] covered=yes" mean?

BTW: In the wiki the group for key:covered was recently changed from 
Placement to Properties. Is that correct?
