I'm afraid I'm going to be a bit of a party pooper.

Whilst having all the boundary data in OSM would be nice, I'd hardly 
call it essential. I do a lot of rural walking & always record & map any 
barriers that are relevant to the path I'm on, but, personally,  I 
consider mapping all hedges etc. a waste of time. Why bother if no one 
is ever going to use that information by walking there?

I consider farmland as the base layer & therefore rarely map it as fields.
