> A waterway=canal, waterway=river, or waterway=stream way inside a lake or pond is probably appropriate to connect an in-flow to an out-flow in a direct line, to allow software to easily trace waterways through lakes or ponds (which are essentially just widening of the waterway) without having to process areas.

I am not sure whatever "to allow software to easily trace" is appropriate reason,

but at least in some cases rivers/streams are considered to not be interrupted by

lake/pond (so stream is not considered to end before lake and start again, but is 

considered to exist within lake).
