the site could be eligible as a World Heritage Site whether or not it's man-made.

Indeed, but a lot of resource goes into applying for World Heritage status and many vested interests appear to lie in pushing the 'pyramids'. If genuine and done transparently, this should open them up to international scrutiny and acceptance but if not, a chance is then lost to promote and preserve the genuine geological and cultural heritage of the site.

If UNESCO recognizes the site, it will be as a cultural/archeological site OR a natural formation. It seems reasonable to expect UNESCO scrutiny to make a clear call between the two.
