[Tagging] layer=-1, rivers, bridges and tunnels

As I said earlier, I fixed a lot of rivers and waterways nearby that were
incorrectly tagged as layer=-1. I removed the layer tag (since it is not
necessary on a river or stream) and checked all the bridges and tunnels in the
area. Some bridges and tunnels did not have a layer tag, which is an error,
so I added them correctly.
The main reason for doing this (other than to correct poor mapping) is because
OSMAND draws rivers with 'layer=-1' differently to rivers with no layer tag,
and it looks bad, especially where there *are* sections of river correctly
tagged with layer=-1, such as in a tunnel, for example.
I am using OSMAND for navigation, so it's important to have clear maps. Now
that I have downloaded the latest data for this area (which includes my
updates) I am much happier with the map I see.
