You forgot water=river (5000 instances)

It's true that the water=* proposal never went to its conclusion :
deprecate "riverbank" officially in the wiki, something decided by 16
people - and you're right - it probably wouldn't have passed). But the
question is coming back soon or later anyway. And since 2+ years the
wiki is ambiguous and does not help newcomers. This way of deprecating
a tag silently is not fair.
