+1, while I'd consider your first point bike shedding, this second point is
indeed important for mapping waterfalls, hence the suggestion to use both,
waterway=waterfall for the single cascade and natural=waterfall as a
comprehensive area for what is a named waterfall, i.e. together with name,
wikipedia and other tags that apply to the entire waterfall (e.g. height,
maximum of water per second passing or whatever else might be interesting
and taggable).
