I'm not sure. Natural=cave is for natural caves, but the wiki on the cave
page says that man made caves are historic=mine:


Historic=mine wiki talks only about mineral mines.

Shelter_type=rock_shelter is also a natural rock formation, not deep enough
to be called a cave.

In other words, we don't have appropriate tags. I would rather use
natural=cave than rock_shelter. At least it correctly shows the type of the
hole, if not the way it was created. We also use natural=water for man made
reservoirs, so I think we can use natural for man made caves too.
