Isn't that covered by natural=cape?  For small values of "cape."

Also missing, but I (re)raised it a few days ago over on the carto git, is
natural=valley.  In my
part of the world there are a lot of named valleys.  Some are used (by
humans) in the same
way other parts of the world use neighbourhood.  Others are used to
designate routes on walks.
Many are labelled on the OS_OpenData_Streetview layer, so the Ordnance
Survey feels there is
some value in identifying them because of local usage.  They are
topographic features that have
been given names and are used in navigation instructions ("Tina moved to a
house in Cwm
Plysgog," "The walk takes you through Cwm Rhew-erwyll [Valley of Frosts]").
