I'm not sure which is preferable there, but I think it should be
consistent, either way.. 

But for river cities this shouldn't be the case, basically every English
city is on a river of some sort. (To pick a random example, London).

But if Dover and Bristol are in the "coastal_cities" list for the english,
then so should Southampton, Folkestone, etc etc

Also note -

Apart from those minor quibbles, looks very interesting... I know I've
often screamed in frustration at seeing my inland cities be called
"-port". :)
