Hello,

i put up a proposal for specifying somewhat tighter limits on where to 
place the transit between the coastline and the riverbank polygon at 
the mouth of a river:

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_Features/Coastline-River_transit_placement

Currently there are essentially no rules at all on this matter and it 
appears to me this is not really helpful for mappers.  Cases of extreme 
placement are rare but when they occur they often have a high impact 
since they involve large scale features usually prominently shown in 
maps.  The limits i drafted are fairly loose and should cover most 
opinions on where the transit should best be placed in individual 
cases.

I do this as a proposal since it at least formally affects the meaning 
of an existing tag although practically there would only be very few 
places where changes would need to be made to comply with it.
