This argument can be applied as well to strategic landscape preservation efforts. The merits of affirming many current preexisting uses will be considered on a case by case basis. Clarification of exceptions or categories of situations in which other values preempt preexisting uses will develop. As time passes and landscape preservation rises in the priority of state governments and public opinion, systematic mechanisms for landscape preservation will need to revisit the protection of preexisting uses in more discriminating ways.
