Was RE: [Talk-us] California landuse import

Personally I like the idea of seperating out portions of the database into
separate sections, but I prefer more use orientated divisions.

Piste (skiing)
land use
admin boundaries

Are some examples.  Things that can be treated as layers.  Easily turned on
and off ect.
Yea most of this is handled by different tags instead.  Perhaps all I really
want is a good way to filter by some set tag types when downloading or
