I can see how this makes rendering easier, but OSM isn't mainly a
database for rendering. I don't see why a river that serves as an admin
boundary should even have a boundary=administrative tag; including it in
the relevant relation should be enough.
Also when the admin_level of an area changes (due to either a political
change or a change of mind in the OSM community about what should be
which admin level in the particular country), I don't want to force
mappers to change the tagging of all affected ways.
On the whole, the openstreetmap-carto team usually has a positive
influence on tagging in OSM and provides the occasional nudge for
mappers to standardise something. In this particular case, I would say
this is an undue request, and the change in tagging would be for the worse.
