enter a lake, then exit on the other side, unless you continue the line of
the river across the lake, various error finders will complain that the
river isn't connected or doesn't have a source.

Yes, you can avoid the problem by drawing the river continuing across the
lake, but isn't that pretty well doing the same thing - mapping an
imaginary way?

It would also work for walking along e.g. a beach. If you walk down onto
the beach here, along it for a while, then leave it via that path there,
there's currently no way of routing between the two paths. This would solve
that issue by creating a "virtual" footpath right along the beach,
connecting to each of the beach access paths.
