I propose to put beach in landforms and cave in water-related. Also
coastline could go into landforms. And moor into landforms. And mud in
water-related. What about putting fell into landforms? ...

yes, that's the point. Our classification system is tags, and this is about
the "natural" class. Putting the values of natural into arbitrary
subclasses doesn't help anybody. IMHO.
