This model is used for many other tags in OSM. One of the most
fundamental tags, access=*, uses it to show "access only for customers"
for example. See
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:access%3Dcustomers .
free_water=customers would not look out of place at all in that list. 

The other dimension that has been mentioned, is "bring your own
container" vs. "we supply the container". Something like
"container=customer", "container=supplier" or "container=both" perhaps?
