That’s my analysis as well. What do you think, shouldn’t we fix the wiki to make it more universally applicable to all kinds of waterways? Or would you suggest we invent new waterway types based on different functional purposes to fill the gaps that current definitions leave behind? 
Do we really need construction details as parts of basic artificial waterway definitions?
