This is generally good. One comment:

It makes more sense to replace:

bridge=movable; bridge:movable=swing
bridge=movable; bridge:movable=lift
bridge=movable; bridge:movable=bascule
bridge=movable; bridge:movable=drawbridge
bridge=movable; bridge:movable=transporter

with simply

bridge=swing
bridge=lift
bridge=bascule
bridge=drawbridge
bridge=transporter

This removes unnecessary duplication, is more memorable ("is it 'moveable'
or 'movable'...?") and accords with current usage (e.g. 577 occurrences of
bridge=swing).

cheers
Richard
