Well there is a proposed waterway=floodway
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Proposed_features/Floodway but that
is listed as man-made

Perhaps waterway=river and natural=drywash when it is natural.  My feeling
is when something hasn't been accepted as the standard tag, use a noremal
tag, with an added tag to clarify.
