+1, for the current state. Still, if this tagging became widely approved
practise it could be thought to remove these riverbank tags. It is really
not very meaningful or elegant to have riverbanks in the middle of the
river (borders between two riverbank polygons). For compatibility reasons
we could also think about having natural=riverbank on an area (in the end a
riverbank is not only a line) and deprecate waterway=riverbank.
