[Tagging] landuse=reservoir vs water=reservoir

I agree with Marcin preference for natural=water, water=reservoir, because
it keeps landuse open for the actual use of the land that contains a
reservoir. I dislike landuse-within-landuse.
But I agree with Tomas that this preference does not make it a "better"
option, and the wiki should not state that it is. Equal alternatives, each
with pros and cons, and all may choose the one they think is best.
I'm convinced that the balance will shift towards natural=reservoir, there
is no need to try and force this.
An editor can have its own preferences, if I don't agree I use another
editor or just ignore it.
