That does highlight an issue that I find frustrating - that mapping of
landuse / barriers etc. is a particular problem if it's done badly (e.g.
ways that share some nodes but not others, that share nodes with things
that they shouldn't because they were added at too low a zoom level, or
were added based on historical low-resolution sources such as NPE).
If you're going to add individual fields, make sure that you've got some
GPS traces to line the imagery up with, and do a rough visual survey
from over the hedge to make sure that all the field boundaries are
actually still there!
