I don't think that's the issue.  For one thing, Quabbin renders fine
in Mapnik, but poorly in Osmarender.  For Salt Fork Lake, the opposite
is true.  So they are two unrelated problems.  For another thing, all
of the relevant wiki pages seem to indicate that landuse=reservoir is
just as valid as natural=water for this type of feature.  (What kind
of "protected area" was tagged as landuse=reservoir in the MassGIS
import?  Unless those areas protect water, that tagging is wrong.)
Besides, I've done numerous smaller bodies of water which are both
landuse=reservoir and natural=water, as multipolygons and as single
ways, and this is the only one causing problems.
