As the deepest middle way is hard to identify for regular mappers, I
would be surprised if many people considered that a strict prerequisite
for mapping rivers. So from my point of view, it would be acceptable for
your import to automatically generate the way from the riverbank area
and upload both the way and area. This is assuming you know the flow
direction, which I do consider important.
