The primary motivation for me is that a water feature with intermittent
is more likely to have water, even it I have to dig a meter or two for
it, than a water feature with ephemeral.
I don't expect a 'normal' map will tell me this. But a desert map should.
I would map the ephemeral river banks/courses.
But then the places where water pools to form more permanent water
sources I would as natural=water, intermittent=yes. In this way they can
be distinguished as a more probable source of water.
Some satellite imagery shows these .. but then some shows the area just
after rain! So it requires some judgements.
I'll add this as a rationale ...
