Indeed the Germans are picky about these things ;-) But suction_point and the pond are two different 
things. The first could also be some pre-installed pipe in a stream, the pond is a dedicated feature 
often prescribed in the planning permission when you erect something, and might need to be 
maintained so it is filled. The first is a point, the second is a water body.

either method is ok, a new template would have the advantage that it keeps the translations consistent.
