Hummm ... looking back to the original definition ...
it looks like waterway=water-point was to be used for caravans.. !!!! As
well as boats.
And now amenity=water_point is to be used for all.
I think the boating people need to change. If not 'they' need to
convince at least 2 users.. and properly define what 'they' are doing
and why... on the wiki ... maybe 'they' should take a very close look at
all the waterway wiki pages before more bogus definitions are found?
