So is a mole a special sort of pier ? Then definition of "pier" in
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dpier is wrong, as it
is not always "a raised walkway over water supported by pillars". So
man_made=pier + pier=wharf, or man_made=pier +
structure=masonry/stone/concrete or man_made=mole ?
