Many artificial man made infrastructure involve natural water taken from
rivers and streams.
The point of waterway isn't only to tag water but the kind of way it is
flowing in (without dealing with usage which is adressed with usage=*)

Lock sections don't get "canal" as name but "lock".
Then waterway=canal + lock=yes sounds correct

All the best
