I agree that this is obviously not a salt_pond. I am thinking this case
ought to be something like basin=evaporation. It would go along nicely
with the other values of basin (detention, retention, infiltration). Since
the goal of such a pond is to evaporate the water and leave the waste
behind, I'm pretty comfortable calling this a case of landuse=basin as the
presence of water is only temporary during the evaporation operation.
