Whilst I think this is a very bad idea for the same reasons as already given by Martin and Janko.

What on earth is a Brunnel? I don't know and neither does google. I have an idea from reading the thread but I wonder how many have ignored the thread through the choice of words in the title?

Rationale in the Wiki says this would save us database space, we would have 2 ways and 1 node less per bridge. Also, that maintaining one node is easier than maintaining 3 ways. Lastly, problem of pretending you have drawn a little bridge precise, when you didn't.

All of these are valid points, 

FWIW, it is not true, we  would "save" 1 way or 2, but the amount of nodes would remain the same, because with the new proposal the waterway would get an extra node which it hasn't otherwise. The 1 way saved is on the other hand loss of information as pointed out before.
