Note the proposal is a draft and does not necessarily represent the 
ultimate wisdom on everything written there.  I am not an expert on 
tidal dynamics of rivers so it is well possible that some adjustments 
in the details are advisable.  Defining the lower limit in the tidal 
case through water flow volume rather than duration seems prudent (and 
also better matching the logic for the non-tidal case) - i chose 
duration mostly because it is practically easier for the mapper to
