Recently I found some 10.000 (one of two changesets contained 38k)
objects tagged like this:¹
| gnis:fcode=39004
| natural=water
| nhd:com_id=146082168
| nhd:fdate=Mon Mar 06 00:00:00 PST 2006
| nhd:reach_code=18030012024071
| source=NHD
| water=lake;pond  

They were imported by nmixter and in v1 were tagged like this:
| ele=0.0
| gnis:fcode=39004
| gnis:ftype=LakePond
| natural=water
| nhd:com_id=146082168
| nhd:fdate=Mon Mar 06 00:00:00 PST 2006
| nhd:reach_code=18030012024071
| source=NHD  

"WorstFixer" removed ele 0.0 and honoured his name by converting 
gnis:ftype=LakePond to 
water=lake;pond

Has anyone objections for removing water=lake;pond and also the other
proprietary data?
I'd think 
| natural=water  
and
| source=NHD  
(and in case it is there)
intermittent=yes
should be sufficient
