Hi, I'd like to add some tags for canoe portages (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage) in wilderness areas. These would be
trails tagged highway=path plus some tag to designate that they're used for
portaging between lakes. I have found three different tags that are
currently used to tag portages (there may be others?), and am wondering if
anyone has recommendations about what would be best.

1) portage=* (223 objects)  http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/portage
2) whitewater=portage_way (227 objects)
3) canoe=portage  (67 object)
