Proposed features/Former riverbed
|Status:||Draft (under way)|
|Applies to:||way, area|
|Definition:||For old riverbed without flow|
|Rendered as:||For area as lake, for way as river|
At present users draw former riverbed as area tagged with natural=water when riverbed with flow (not wide river) draw as way tagged with waterway=river. But in fact these objects (former riverbed and riverbed with flow of not wide river) have exactly the same forms and characteristics exept flow. I think that drawing these objects with one primitives will be more correctly.
For example river Vetluga which have a lot of long and not wide former riverbeds.

Rendering these objects same lakes (area) and rivers (way).
