Lava Field versus Lava Flow?

I’m wondering if the distinction between a “lava field” versus a “lava flow” is important to maintain in OSM. The two concepts are mentioned in Proposal:Volcanic features - OpenStreetMap Wiki

I’m asking because a recent sequence of 28 changesets have completely removed the geological=volcanic_lava_flow tag from OSM and replaced it with geological=volcanic_lava_field.

I don’t know that these changes have been discussed, but if so, I’d be interested to follow the discussion.

What do other mappers think, especially those with some background in geology?
