The problem I see is that the      definition of rock shelter is subjective enough that this sort of      tagging will happen from time to time. Some mappers will stretch      the definition because they just love adding features. And since      rock shelters are currently a subtag of amenity=shelter, people      looking for amenity=shelter -- with the possibly live-saving      properties that implies -- will be misled.

The problem is that I want to have way to find rock shelters usable as shelter for humans.

If natural=rock_shelter is not bound to      fulfilling the existing expectations of the shelter tag,
thenĀ  want new tag that is bound to fulfilling the existing expectations of the shelter tag
and can be applied to rock shelters.
