I've removed natural=land, as it seems to be consensus now to make islands with multipolygons. Besides, the comment "Layering may also be required." is definitely wrong and encourages abuse of the layer tag.

natural land Node Area Land that exists within another area, such as a lake. (i.e an island). Keep water on the right and land on the left side in relation to sequence of nodes in the Way. Layering may also be required. See Relations/Multipolygon for islands in lakes

As far as I can see, most islands are tagged as natural=land. You should have only removed the layering remark. --abunai 16:14, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
