It has the disadvantage that it doesn't make sense. At least not to me, as
a native speaker of
British English (which is the normal language for defining OSM tags) and as
doesn't work in sanitation. Maybe a British sanitation engineer would use
basin or a non-British
speaker would use basin but I most definitely would not.
Firstly, I don't think of a settling tank or clarifier as a basin. A
porcelain object for washing hands
in a bathroom is a basin and a geological depression in which water
collects is a basin, and a
man-made depression for holding water might be a basin but a clarifier
isn't. I can see the
commonalities in all of those but a clarifier just isn't a basin. Other
than bathroom porcelain,
a basin requires a depression in the ground.
Secondly, if you're going to apply landuse to a man-mad object rather than
to an area of ground
that holds a collection of man-made objects then instead of building=house
we should have
landuse=house. We don't do things that way.
