waterway=canal is for larger artificial waterways only.
Our current tagging scheme for artificial waterways is not very
consistent because it derives essentially from three originally very
specific but at the same time only vaguely defined types
(canal/drain/ditch). Creating yet another equally specific and equally
ill defined type (waterway=leat) will not improve that.
I would suggest sticking with the three established types and adding
service=* and width=* as it applies.
