You're kidding, right?

To me it's clear that disused:*=* is better for things that are no longer what they were, e.g. disused:shop=*

If however you want to map a canal where the water is still present, I'm fine with waterway=canal, disused=yes since the feature is still a canal, even though it's no longer used.
