>> Place=locality makes sense, I guess the name is also used for the area close to the bend by extension.
>> Locality on a node is always troublesome, and I wonder if anybody uses description=* to describe further the place, here this would be something like description=river bend. 
> A simple place=locality gives no hint to a renderer that this is a water feature, and I can easily imagine a map style where one wants to do something special with those, like using blue text.
> Look at this example from northern Sweden, where features in the river (Bredselet, Trångforsen and Vidselet) have lent their names, but in different grammatical form, the the nearby villages/hamlets of Bredsel, Trångfors and Vidsel.
> (Follow there river and you'll see several other named rapids (-fors) and stretches of smooth water between them (-sel).
