for fountains natural=water is/was the suggested tagging for the water surfaces, so any other water tagging will hardly be more misleading (if you read "natural" as strictly natural, like in mother earth).

at least this is what people have been reading at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Tag%3Aamenity%3Dfountain&type=revision&diff=1222609&oldid=1212273
(so was I told by the carto-osm team some years ago). Not sure why this reference to natural =water was removed, at least I don't recall any discussion on this list
