Mateusz, as IIRC you're often for a clear definition:

Overlapping areas are not clear as long they are the only approved way
to express mixed landuses. They must be used for "one over the other" as
well as "one mixed with the other" - so shall a renderer draw a small
red area covering a large green area (XORed), or a red & green
chessboard pattern (mixed/ORed)?

In contrast, after approval of the proposal, one polygon carrying both
landuse=residential and landuse:secondary=retail is clearly a mix with
clear precedence, and any case with two overlapping areas will then mean

Cheers, Georg
