If it's rather stable, and veryfiable, it's worth to map.

So AFAIK, reefs belong to that category.

All it takes is someone with the knowledge about the possible classifications, and with the time to document it.

You can document your tag as a proposal: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features But you can start using it, even before the proposal is accepted (be sure that you map only from data that's legal to use).
