I am sure that someone will say "tag for meaning/description, not for
renderers". It is right, of course. But when renderers get odd, one
cannot always be pure :-)
That said, I started using width on rivers when I mapped a footpath
along the bank of a river and the renderers showed it inside the river!
The default rendering width seemed to assume a very major river. In this
case, width=n communicates essential information to the renderers.
