area icons

I find it hard to identify area features just from the color of the fill. landuse=forest, leisure=pitch and landuse=farmland, all look the same to me on the map. It would be nice to have patterns or other visual cues to tell them apart.

My idea is to use a papercutting style with silhouette icons. Here is how it could look:

You can see landuse=allotments, natural=wood and landuse=residential.

I've attached the style for testing.

Could be useful for editing without an imagery layer (as seen in the ticket).
