I'd say "spreads" rather than "spread" because that's the term OS uses.
I've only
ever seen OS use it on the terminal node of a waterway.  More of a
symbol than an asterisk, usually, but an asterisk works.  I have no idea how
you'd render it sensibly on a way.  I assume you're thinking of something
like a
very sandy river bed where the water sometimes gets further than other
depending on conditions.  I'd be happy enough with a single node, because
that's better than we have now.  If you can justify applying it to a way and
think there's a need then do so, but if you're just trying to keep QA tools
