I have some concerns on my proposal.
I am taking the proposal back to status=draft if that is OK.
It should be better off as a landcover=bare_rock instead,
but that key is not really accepted.
If used with the natural-key then
it should at least be possible to use the same way as natural=wetland
with subtags of wetland=..
I started a new thread on that.
Another concern is that the tag is only supposed to be used for solid rock,
I am not sure how people are supposed to know that.
And what to use for loose rock.
