Yes, my first post.  But just me as a map and outdoors enthusiast.   
Not representing W3C.
No subtext to my post.  Just asking for  tag.

(Now landuse=conservation is in mapnik and osmarender, I am more  
confident we are making progress on this, and will be able to motivate  
people to maintain maps of conservation land.)

That said, I'm happy to separately talk mapping the OSM to the  
semantic web, OSM and W3C in  in a subject line.
