amenity=shelter is not about being purpose-built but about something being
used for a purpose.
I would not use the natural key with a value like "shelter" or
"rock_shelter", as this is about the purpose, a specific use of the
situation, and not a description of the physical situation.

a valid approach and I would go for it.

You could still double tag it with natural=cliff_overhang (or whatever
describes the feature) if you like.
