(1) Have you (or someone else) tried making issue on iD bugtracker requesting revert
and explaining why it should be done? Even assuming that it is unwanted, there is no
good reason to start from tagging list mail

(2) I see significant benefit of natural=water + water=*
This way one may display water with simply looking for natural=water
rather than multiple separate values. And I would not describe using
landuse=reservoir for reservoir water area as a desirable tagging.
