I think that discussion should have been titled Stop tagging 
natural=wood and landuse=forest differently.

As I've said have a unified render just covers up that we're tagging 
incorrectly. There should only be one primary tag to describe large area 
of trees.

Whether it be landcover or landuse or whatever, I'm not that concerned 
about but it really should only be one option.
