[Tagging] Are rowboats covered by "boat=*" or "canoe=*"?

The wiki page Key:boat <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:boat> says
that tag is to specify

"Legal access restriction for boats. In the sense of OSM these are small
boats and pleasure crafts, including yachts."

The picture shows a "no rowboats" sign: File:A.16_Fahrverbot.svg

But there is also a key canoe=* - the page Key:canoe
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:canoe> says:

"Legal access restriction for boats without a motor or a sail like canoes,
kajaks or rowboats."

I can see how canoes and kayaks are basically the same, since both are
narrow boats that usually carry 1 or 2 people and are propelled by paddles.

But should rowboat access restrictions be under this key
canoe=yes/no/designated, or are they under boat=yes/no/designated - or
something else?
