I don't know about the others, but I've been thinking about this one, and
there's a simple solution. Drawing a big polygon around the whole mountain
is not very effective. There are no clear boundaries for a mountain. But
what we can do is put a tag like "mountain=*" on all "natural=peak" nodes.
Maybe even on alpine_huts and other features. That way some software could
find arbitrary boundaries using that data and SRTM data.

Maybe valleys can be solved in the same way.
