Hi Warin, 

I think landuse=basin is correct, because water=basin implies, for me at least, that there is normally water in it. While there are many basins that are normally dry. Here are several basins that are only filled during extreme rain events: https://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=Parsberg#map=17/49.15540/11.70908

The present OSM meaning of landuse=basin is "An area of land artificially graded to hold water."
This does not distinguish it from water=reservoir
OSM defined as "A reservoir or artificial lake used to store water."

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

"An area of land artificially graded to temporarily hold water."

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