Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Bridges are tagged 1, a culvert or tunnel -1, but is a culvert below a tunnel -2 ? Like a metro system ? And what about two basins alongside each other, but in diffent levels ? Its a polder system, a pump lifts the water up to a certain level, sometimes repeatedly. All water levels the same value, none ?

if features are really above each other, you can indeed use also higher values. between -5 and 5 is possible. Otherwise, see Circeus' answer.

Unless they are actually one above the other, you can probably do with only the ele tag. Layer is a tag mostly for display for features that overlap each others. If two features don't overlap, layers are pointless.
