Hi, thank you for raising this issue. I’d like to add a use case to our
reflexion, which seems very close (an area where we store stuff mostly open
air) :

In the north of France we cultivate sweet beetroots, at the harvest they’re
being stock in a pile over a ground which is permanent and made most of the
time of gravel.
Examples :
In summer :
After the harvest :

I can’t find a good tagging scheme,
man_made=bunker_silo : kind of troll tag since there is no wall
landuse=farmyard : it’s not into a farm
