yes, another example is this one in Tuscany, It, which is normally
submerged in a lake, but will come to light every 10 years or so when the
lake is dried out for maintenance of the dam:

Situations like this:

 are very different, in that nothing of the original landscape (or village)
remains (this is open pit mining of lignite in Saxony, Germany, or more
precisely a place called "Heuersdorf" close to the mine "Vereinigtes
Schleenhain" pic taken 09-02-2009). Another image here:

The latter example shouldn't probably be mapped in OSM, as there is
literally nothing left now, while the former is still there, it is simply
degraded by the water and not visible most of the time due to the lake.

cheers,
Martin
