the waterway key should be used for waterways. Waterway=biwak in the way you described it is missleading as it isn't about a waterway (or even a waterway feature IMHO). Looking at taginfo this is currently used fewer than 100 times so my suggestion would be to find a better tag for these (I.e. fortunately it is not used often).
