Normally I'd agree with you 100%, but in this case it's a bit
different because as pointed out earlier weirs tend to be non-moving
for the most part (even if they can be temporarily removed) and the
water freely flows over the top, sluice gates allow water to be
diverted and generally don't have water flowing over the top of them
and spillway gates of dams can be dry 99% of the time unless the dam
is so full water needs to be released to prevent water from flowing
over the top of them.

Perhaps a more generic approach would work, eg

waterway=flow_control
flow_control=weir|sluice_gate|flood_gate|spillway_gate|....
