Untagged is undesirable.  Could be anything.  Footpath in an area prone to
heave flooding.  Ley line.  Anything. :)

Waterway=river is just plain wrong.

Route=ferry is also wrong, but not quite as wrong as the others.  It's a
step in the right direction.  As the old joke goes,
now we're just haggling over money.

Route=canoe is the right way to go, I think.  It may not render at present
(I haven't checked) but the carto guys may
decide to render it at some point in the future.  Factors in the decision
will be how often it is used and if it serves a
useful purpose.
