looks as if "toponym" appears mostly in the Netherlands and was maybe
introduced by the AND import:
wouldn't be bad to have some docu in English about the intended usage
and meaning.

For natural=water there are (conflicting) additional tags proposed:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:water which was approved last
year here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Water_details

Unfortunately it was overseen that "water" was already in use by the
time (guess, I didn't check when this mass of intermittent was
entered). If you look at taginfo most actually used values are
"intermittent", followed by "lake;pond" (the sheer quantity makes this
look like an import or similar).
