|Definition:||Deprecate proposed tags (from WikiProject Whitewater Maps);|
|Rendered as:||OpenLayer, (much like OpenCycleMap)|
I wish to combine the not yet official tags, whitewater:rapid_name=* and whitewater:section_name=* to form a simpler whitewater:name=* Key. The Key should be used on both Nodes and Ways which make up the river. By combining these keys I feel you simplify mapping, and the task of updating the small number of tags already in use would be relatively simple using a bot.
A community of (Kayakers, Canoeists, and Whitewater Rafters) can already be found on this Wiki and have started tagging rivers for human powered navigation. Having a definitive tagging system for them would be beneficial.

Currently in use, but not agreed upon unanimously and not documented in full;
- whitewater:name=* - Name of River Feature/Rapid (When used on a Node) or Section (When used on a Way).
