I agree with youk Graeme. I also saw that change on the tagging guidelines
and was going to raise it so glad you did. There are still such things as
covered reservoirs but these are more where you've got a larger area that
is a reservoir that was covered over. The typical water towers, unless
significantly elevated would just be man_made=storage_tank + content=water
as you said.
