Well, as far as Majorca is concerned, it's lost for you already - a  
third occupied by Germans, another third by the English, and the  
remaining third are local people who (sometimes) dislike the Spanish  
even more than they dislike Germans and the English ;-)

Maybe I can offer you something in exchange... why don't you come and  
visit one of the wet and cold German North Sea islands, they're  
mostly unmapped terrain ;-)

I've been toying with the idea of using "landuse" but that would then  
clash with a "landuse=residential" created for the area of the whole

But we don't yet draw things *inside* buildings on our maps ;-)  
leisure=pool is perhaps best for now.
