Agreed. I was going to say that reusing emergency=yes was going to cause

Also, presumably emergency spillways are mapped as areas, rather than
lines, but they probably should have both, to have the water network and
show the area.  The one I am familiar with is really large - the point
is to avoid erosion if it is ever used, to protect the dam from collapse
which might happen if the primary spillway overflowed.
