Basically I'm tagging general characteristics of waterways. It seems the
categories will be:
*maintained for deep draft ocean vessels
*maintained for shallow draft barges and pleasure boats
*not maintained, possibly open to pleasure boats
I don't see any such values in the Seamark Tag Values table. The closest
is depth_max (shouldn't this be maxdepth, to match such tags as
maxheight?), but there don't seem to be legal depth restrictions on most
