Churchyard is often a Graveyard

This definition begins Used to map the area surrounding a ... church ..., particularly when this does not contain a graveyard. Yet the first thing I discover when I visit the linked Wikipedia article for Churchyard is that a churchyard will frequently contain a graveyard. It has only been in the last century or so that the practice of burying people in a separate cemetery, often for public health reasons, has arisen. My dictionary goes so far in the opposite direction to state that that the grounds around a church, used as a graveyard are the churchyard. Given the degree of confusion this might cause and the fact that we already have the tag amenity=grave_yard and the tag landuse=religious doesn't the tag landuse=churchyard become redundant? I think this term should be deprecated. - Huttite (talk) 01:01, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Yes, landuse=churchyard is unnecessary. --Polarbear w (talk) 16:51, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
