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!
