underwater rocks

I propose adding note that this should not be used for rock areas that are permanently under water. For example rocky island may be tagged as natural=bare_rock but rocky bottom of ocean should not be tagged this way (this proposal is result of ) Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 12:56, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

We have ~ 2x2.6 mio of natural=wood and landuse=forest, presumably 99% of those contain numerous rivers or streams mapped without splitting the forest in pieces on stream/riverbank boundary. Doing it otherwise is plainly not doable and every renderer out there got it mostly right. Same is valid for bare_rock and similar. So it would be better to document the problem with oceans which is currently and midterm unsolvable and document best practices when natural/landuse/landcover overlap with natural=water or natural=coastline.
