I think the wiki/documentation of the European Water Project should then
describe this in a way that newbies also understand the different values
of the tag.

Because a "container" could be anything (at a supermarket or kiosk it
could also be a container for food), I suggest something like
"free_water:container=*" to make clear that the container "availability"
refers to the refill service.
