Hi,

The presentOSM meaning of landuse=basin is "An area of land artificially 
graded to hold water."
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landuse%3Dbasin
This does not distinguishit from water=reservoir
OSM defined as 
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:water%3Dreservoir> "A reservoir 
or artificial lake used to store water."
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:water%3Dreservoir


I think it should have the word "temporarily" add to read


"An area of land artificially graded to temporarilyhold water."


I see it as similar to the bathroom basin - it holds water, but not all 
the time.

Thoughts?
