So why is this almost vertical surface at the edge of the river bed any different than if this vertical surface was say the surface of a tree trunk or the side of a crack below the ground? It would seem the purpose of 802.02C is to allow players to reposition their mark (without penalty) when landing above/below a nearby playing surface where they can physically take a stance.

The difference is the edge of a river bed is a playing surface. Since when are tree trunks a playing surface? Your argument here is a slippery slope.
