If Wakita is a BO agent, Rum would say his codename instead of a riddle. BO almost never is using names (perhaps even never), but codenames. There is a fair chance that the BO agents among themselves don't know how each other are named. Rum assuming that Bourbon knows Wakita's name (or even him) is illogical. For example Akai was in the BO for a while, gained even a codename, and yet he allowed Calvados to kill himself. It looked as if one codenamed agent never meet another codenamed agent. So, even if Wakita is a BO agent, it doesn't mean that Bourbon must know him.
Like with Kudo in that message, Rum just sends what he wants, and it's your job to find out about who he wants some info. A simple question, how so Rum can be so sure that Bourbon even knows that Shinichi guy? For example I doubt that Tequila ever heard of him, Gin openly says he doesn't remember names, so for him Shinichi doesn't ring a bell as well. Not to mention that having the name in kanji helps a lot in searching for info. Having a riddle instead of kanji makes searching for info harder.
Rum can order investigating Kudo simply because Kudo won't know that someone is gathering info about him. Yet, if he wants to know more about another BO member, he as Rum has a better access to info than Bourbon, and since nobody knows him he could use that to gain info a codenamed agent would never get. Looking himself about some info about another agent would also mean that the risk of having that info being leaked is equal to zero. Giving that order to Bourbon means that there is always a risk that Wakita will find out that someone is gathering info about him. This way Rum also wouldn't need to send a cryptic message that would be understood by Wakita immediately anyway.
And yeah, probably we see the manga in different lights, because people can always be replaced regardless how good they are (like Pisco, or Sherry), and if Rum has some doubts about someone, it always better and safe just to kill them. There are probably many other skilled people within the BO that would take Wakita's place. Why would Rum without hesitation allow killing their top drugs creator - Sherry - a person they needed the most to continue their research, and yet hesitate killing some chef? Senseless to me.
I'm not being aggressive I'm just perplexed that whatever reasons that you're coming up with holds no water.
To assume everybody in the organization knows everybody else by their codenames is just perplexing.(For the maximum part of his stay in the Organization Rye heard, Rum's name only once or twice. But for no.2 of the organization, knowing BO agent's fake identities is not something problematic at all)
The problem with your assertion that Rum doesn't need to send a cryptic message is that it fails to prove a point, why Rum shouldn't.
Suppose Wakita kills Bourbon while Bourbon was snooping on him and gets his mobile phone, and opens the inbox, he would know it was Rum who is suspicious of him not Bourbon, while sending the cryptic message and making telling Bourbon to solve it himself, is like being sure enough to get out of the trouble.
Also your assertion that it won't have any chance of being leaked is quiet a contrived one. Bourbon losing his mobile, it's getting stolen, someone/a BO agent accidentally sees his messages by sheer coincidence. Given the current revelations about Kohji case, Rum should be very much on the defensive. So he'll venture out only after putting his own house in order.
Also why if Wakita is in a disguise with the rat-tooth, it's unlikely people who have seen him once/twice will really identify him. So Rum is telling Bourbon to get some more info on him(Wakita the person) without revealing his codename, so that Bourbon himself won't know why Rum is demanding the info(as he's suspicious of Wakita being a spy or he just think a random third party is poking his nose?)
