I do not think that they are pointless. If a forest has a name, why 
shouldn't it get a POI?

But I do not understand, is why e.g. I do not get a POI for:
    <tag k='area' v='yes'/>
    <tag k='name' v='Wisent'/>
    <tag k='tourism' v='attraction'/>

but one for:
    <tag k='building' v='yes'/>
    <tag k='name' v='Villa Dracula'/>
    <tag k='tourism' v='attraction'/>

I thought that area=yes should make --add-poi-to-areas to attach a 
camera (in this case) to "Wisent". (I am still in my zoo ... :-)))
(In Villa Dracula, you can watch bats)
