Difference to mouth of the watercourse (P403)
There should probably be a "Tributary of" property also. (A river would be a tributary of only 1 other water body, except in very exceptional circumstances.) --Closeapple (talk) 08:31, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Considering this and the previous section, I've proposed aliases at Property talk:P403#Relationship to tributary, to add "tributary of", "flows into", and "water mouth is on" to mouth of the watercourse (P403). Anyone with objections can comment there. --Closeapple (talk) 23:19, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
- tributary (P974) is for rivers flowing into another river, lake inflows (P200) is for rivers flowing into a lake or sea. --Pasleim (talk) 21:34, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Use for veins in anatomy
OBO defines tributary_of as:
"X tributary_of y if and only if x a channel for the flow of a substance into y, where y is larger than x. If x and y are hydrographic features, then y is the main stem of a river, or a lake or bay, but not the sea or ocean. If x and y are anatomical, then y is a vein."
Can this property be defined that way so that it's also useable for veins? participants of WikiProject MedicineThe WikiProject Geology WikiProject does not exist. Please correct the name. ChristianKl (talk) 20:44, 1 September 2016 (UTC)Notified
- I don't see the benefits of mixing the two. Same English word, but they don't really interconnect.

P4614 (drainage basin) constraint
I'm deleting this constraint, since it doesn't seem very relevant: you shouldn't need to know about a river's drainage basin (and create an item for it) before you can name its mouth or tributary. It has 10859 violations. Ghouston (talk) 06:10, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
