basically the reservoir now has dual functionality
This sounds like a potential issue. I noticed that washer fluid often gets low after a track session without using the washer, and some of my friends noticed similar issue, so it appears that the fluid either evaporates due to high temps under hood or leaks out somehow. I would not want that to happen to meth during a track session.
