did you read the proposal ?
look at the natural part of the picture
it's not a man_made=pipeline
I have explored several siphons in my life,
but I have never done caving in a pipeline :)

have 2 separate tags for "use" and for the "hardware" is much more 
We already do this for many other objects e. g. highway <> surface:
you have a continuity of highway=* tag even if the surface of the roads 
changes and in case of tunnels or bridges.
this is exactly what the proposal wants to do: a continuity of the 
waterway=* tags even if the materials/man_made/usage/tunnel change.
With this clear structure, you can use water flow datas separately from 
material datas.
