Hmm. It could get increasingly difficult to objectively distinguish 
between all the different types of man-made water channel: canal, drain, 
aqueduct. (Incidentally, taginfo shows 40,000 uses of 
"waterway=artificial" - anyone know what that is?)

I guess the difference in the above is the purpose: transport, 
stormwater, and drinking water respectively. How is one supposed to tag 
an irrigation channel?
