place=farm will be harder to resolve as 'landuse' isn't perceived as a 
node tag. Converting nodes to polygons is laborious compared with 
tweaking a tag.

IMO these 'clean ups' don't happen often enough. It's not so much a race 
'against time' but against errors compounding & gaining authority purely 
on quantity (place=farm has almost doubled in the last year). Errors 
should be nipped in the bud.
