the drain definition says to use canal for very big drains.
The canal definition was changed in March 2018, before it said to use canal only for „the largest waterways created for irrigation purposes“

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Tag%3Awaterway%3Dcanal&type=revision&diff=1592405&oldid=1482317

and the rendering style in OSM carto is significant as well. 

Although the current situation of the wiki doesn’t reflect it, I would say it has been very clear for a very long time that waterway=canal is about „big“ artificial waterways. It should be fixed in the wiki.


Cheers,
Martin
