I see lots of potenital improvement for the tagging of swimming:
* swimmable areas in lakes, oceans
* swimming routes
* hazards
* beachfront access, water entry
* some water holes are just for dipping, not really swimming

Do not know how to best do it other than sport=swimming is not suitable
for most of it.
