As well as presence other options for a new tag would be:
Permanence seems to be the more commonly used term.
I wouldn't include the seasonal value as there is already a seasonal key
and we should use that.
In effect what I think we need is to generalise the existing stream key:
so it can be used on other water objects (assuming that people would
think that natural=wetland + stream=ephemeral would look odd--otherwise
no need for a new key).
