On the canal wiki article <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Canal> it
says "An artificial open waterway used for transportation, waterpower, or
irrigation." I guess we have to add "drinking water" to that list.

When you look at the Wikipedia canal
there is nothing remotely similar to a qanat.

I really don't understand why we have to flatten complexity of all types of
waterways into a few different tags.
