I wanted to add in «Obstacle» page, the keys obstacle=bridge and
obstacle=lock that are in use, but not documented. There are values that
refers to obstacles in waterways.

I have a doubt... I think that obstacle=bridge is a value consistent with
the obstacle definition:
But I'm not really sure with the key obstacle=lock , because I think that
could be better use barrier=lock or man_made=lock (I'm not a marine, and I
don't have a exact idea about what is exactly a lock or a lock gate). The
question is that this key=value is used more than 400 nodes and ways (
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/obstacle#values), I must add this
value on the page? (Although I don't think is really an obstacle?)

Another question: Someone knows what refers the key obstacle=line?
