I don't get this, which situation do you think of when you say " If some
rivers/streams shouldn't be connected " ?
If OSM takes a "all rivers must be connected through lakes", then data
consumers have a simple job. If OSM says "some will and some won't",
then data consumers have to process the data to add intra-lake
connections. If they have to do it some of the time, why bother
connecting *any* rivers?
I think I'll change to not connecting rivers, unless it's very obvious,
and leaving data consumers to connect rivers themselves.
