way instead of area. Simpler to do and more flexible.
Also I would favor the "namespaced" variants (natural=cliff:base, 
man_made=embankememnt:base). Makes it clear that those are optional/additional
details and leaves a clear path for further extensions (eg :ramp: ?)

see how far you get without relations.

draw man_made=levee covering all elements
