To me, waterway=* should only get values to map linear water courses for
the routable hydrographic network.
Newer tagging with natural=water sounds ok, except for artificial water
I'm not so keen of natural=water over a man made irrigation canal, unless
there is no artificial water, even in artificial man made structures

All the best
