By what definition?  The pipeline that 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/203739284 would be considered by just 
about any local looking at it as a pipeline and that pipeline is 
composed of a series of syphons (that way itself uses one to get over 
the canal).  Maybe here's some pre-existing OSM usage that suggests that 
a "pipeline is not a pipeline" or a "syphon is not a syphon", but 
doesn't seem to explain it.

Best Regards,
