Since Minh has dropped the link on the list, it's probably time to make it

This is an RFC for the proposed tag industrial=tailing_pond, which is
tagging for tailing ponds outside of the natural=water structure. This
proposal also deprecates the tagging of reservoirs as tailing ponds as part
of an overall strategy to better define reservoir tagging.

There was a bit of debate in off-list discussions as to exactly how to
categorize tailing ponds and this seemed like the best fit, however, I am
not particularly attached to any particular tagging scheme, so please speak
up if you think these should be categorized elsewhere:
