Alright, thanks for the clarification.

I would guess that I am not the only one who gets confused by this. In
fact I would even say that there is probably not a unison agreement in
the community to this definition of landuse=forest. In this sense a
landcover tag would indeed make sense. If one would include this, a
renderer could decide whether to show a "political" or "physical" map.
Right now we are in some kind of confusing superposition.
