Greg, I think you have the tags right but I'd rather see the waterway
and highway mapped as separate ways, even if they superimpose. While
they may be in the same place, they are different things. If the wadi
is like what we see here in Oz, its probably pretty wide and may be best
mapped as an area rather than a line, that way, the highway way would be
more distinguishable. And we need be realistic about their position and
accept they move.
