These types of objects should be pretty exceptional. I try to split
landuses to sub 1km² because i also feel the pain for
rendering tiles. As soon as someone touches those areas you invalidate
tons of tiles. So breaking this down also benefits us long term
concerning workload on the tile servers.

Main reason is still maintainability though. As soon as an object is
not in the Mappers complete view things tend to break.
