  Wiki is incorrect. Even "creator" of "everything blue is
natural=water" agreed (in wiki discussion) that his scheme is in no
way superior to existing OSM water scheme and does not depreciate
established landuse=reservoir tag (and other tags like
waterway=riverbank etc.).
  And most importantly - mappers have "voted" with mapping more
landuse=reservoir (426 123) than water=reservoir (194 454) (even with
iD making it extremely hard for non experts to tag landuse=reservoir).
