Most ponds that I add are as a result of survey, so "should not be
mapped because it is not observable on the ground" doesn't make a lot of
sense to me. To be honest, I usually just leave them as natural=water,
but that's just my laziness.

If you're sat there looking at a pond, it's usually pretty obvious
whether it's man-made or not. Has it got a man-made dam at one side and
is it fed by obviously man-made ditches? Then it's probably man-made.
Is it just in a natural dip in the ground with none of those features?
Then it probably isn't.
Even if you're looking at imagery some of those features will still be
visible - mill ponds show up pretty clearly, as do the waterways created
to feed them.
