Does anyone have any objection to this? It's causing some noticeable rendering issues both in the standard style and for data consumers.

yes, if the coastline tag remains it seems logical to remove the natural=water tag. Semantically the coastline tag on a freshwater lake is clearly wrong, but it seems to be an accepted compromise in this case: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:natural%3Dcoastline#What_about_lakes.3F
