RP: are the ways closed? riverbank requires that they are. it also requires they are oriented a particular way. see the wiki for more information
--
HB: yes, they are closed areas (thus "_poly"). Water should be on the right side of the way, land on the left. Note this layer has no river name or direction associated with it, that's in river_cl.
