The landcover-scheme is interesting, haven´t heard about that. 
It would be nice to have a "sytematic definition of physical geography
characteristics" to fill the white areas between the roads with. 
If you don´t mind I will edit the landcover-proposal and change landcover=rock
to landcover=bare_rock.

So regardless of the key natural/landcover, I propose the use of the tag
"bare_rock".
