Nope.... it's actually just a rendering rule that can be created.

If the direction of the way is drawn in the same flow of the water, it
should always be drawn with an arrow.

this rendering rule could be immediatly applied on mapnik, then you
would see water pointing everywhere ... this just needs to be manually

Perhaps a recreation map like cyclemap and/or hikebikemap.de could
impliment this?

(i complained on the talk-ca) and this is the solution.

It's on my list to impliment it for CommonMapnik rendering, so the
geobase NHN will all look great, since the geometry is correct with
the flow (canvec rivers are not).
