I was thinking about better rendering rivers on medium and low zoom
levels of osm-carto and I've found that we lack any classification of
them - anything bigger than stream is just a river.
There are no suitable tags defined:
and no such tags in database too:
There are some waterway classification systems used in cartography:
but how should we tag them?
