comment Can formal logic give a precise notion of “canonical”?
Usul's idea is somewhat similar to what I had in mind.

comment Intuition behind $\zeta(2) = \frac{\pi^2}{6}$
Could there be a motivic reason? Isn't Grothendieck's conjecture supposed to imply that all algebraic relations between periods have a geometric origin? Zeta(2) appears as a period of pi_1(P^1-{0,1,infty})- it would come up in H^3 of a quotient of (P^1-{0,1,infty})^3.

comment Understanding/Mastering Analysis in Topology, necessary?
I think complex/algebraic geometers have a similar issue in using the Hodge decomposition, which has purely algebraic consequences not all of which have a known purely algebraic proof, but without knowing how to prove the decomposition.
