Ask the farmer? :-)

There is a more general issue though, I currently don't take landuse
with a name in to account on the grounds that such nodes/areas should
have a place tag on them too. Unluckily adding a place tag to a landuse
causes the name no longer to be rendered in the standard "Mapnik" style
(and adding a separate node probably has other undesirable side
effects). While one could take a purist standpoint on this, essentially
it is extremely unlikely that people are going to add tags that cause
something that already "worked" to "break".

In conclusion I would tend to add the named landuses as OK to my script,
any other opinions?
