yes, I'd also see it like this. So how would you tag a de:"Grat"? natural=edge?

not sure if we should map them at all. Mapping geographical features
as big as those is usually not an OSM domain (we do this is no field:
we don't map oceans and seas, we don't map landscapes, valleys and
mountain ranges, ...

Our data model, processing and db organisation is not very suited to
handle this kind of stuff.
