<upd_detl>Encountered as [2]: ナメていると死ぬよ。 (The winters here are bitter...) Underestimate them and you'll die.

Subtitled with katakana ナメ, consistent with the discussion that forked this entry off of 舐める.

Having "to underestimate" under [1] at the end of a long list has a couple of shortcomings:
1. This particular list really looks like it is trying to apply to people
2. At the end of the list, "underestimate"  looks like a context-dependent niche possibility, rather than a primary sense.

No one is talking about "looking down on", "making fun of", "putting down" or "mistreating" a mountain, I don't think.(refs)</upd_detl>
<upd_refs>Some guesses I made and their ngrams:
冬をナメ	97	  
海をナメ	199
山をナメ	1069</upd_refs>

<upd_detl>I think a simple reordering of the glosses is sufficient. None of the refs split.
I think we can delete this entry and add ナメる back to 1571320 as an sk form (with an "also written as ナメる" note on sense 4).</upd_detl>
