Water heater with incoming cold line low down on side of tank

This is not a standard plumbing term, but our way to describe a water heater that has the cold plumbing coming in low down on the side, as at right, with the hot plumbing exiting through the cover of the tank, below, as opposed to top-plumbed or side-plumbed. For whatever reason, the installer capped the cold-port nipple on this tank.
