To be honest I don't see the point. You should use the already  
existing landuse=military. School, parking lot, etc. that you  
mentioned should be rendered on top of that, like landuse=residential.  
Using "landuse" also avoids certain ambiguities like: which side of  
the boundary is the military area?
