For areas or features which are occasionally but not always covered with water - flood plains, riverbanks, variable-height lakes and reservoirs, foreshores and beaches, causeways, paths or tracks on tidal mud/sands, islands in rivers at low water, etc.

Proposal Partially Deprecated (for some purposes) by Proposed features/Wetland areas. However, a major ongoing import of canadian governement data (Canvec) - with a lot of intermittent water areas - has been tagged that way after discussion with the canadian osm community.
