I'm sorry I can't be part of Ducth discussions.
Both waterway=flow_control + flow_control=sluice_gate and
waterway=sluice_gate aren't properly described on wiki and used
respectively about 500 and 250 times each.
A proposal remains about the first

As a reviewed key valve=gate exists, I'd be in favor of a third possibility
: waterway=valve + valve=gate
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:valve%3Dgate (I know one of the
examples involves a sluice gate and described as pipeline=valve).
This would be consistent with pipeline=valve (equivalent of flow control
device) + valve=gate.
waterway=valve would be designed for every situation where pipeline=valve
isn't suitable (i.e when the duct isn't a pipeline, for free flow canals,
tunnels and so on...)

All the best
