Please please don't do that.

Navigable waterways do sometimes have oneway sections for boats. For
example, it's common on river bridges for one arch to be devoted to upstream
traffic, another to downstream.

The oneway tag is useful for this in its traditional use as an access
restriction. Please don't destroy its utility by repurposing it for
something different entirely.

cheers
