I don't think they're the right tool for whitewater. They let water in through the seals, and two of my sea kayaking buddies have found their nearly-new suits were leaking like sieves through the arms and feet because of loads of pin-prick holes in the fabric. Some sea-kayakers swear by them, claiming they're a good compromise - you don't stay dry, but you don't overheat. Personally, I want a drysuit to stay dry. On a cold winter's white water run, with the risk of beat-downs, swims, and long shuttles back to your car, I'd definitely want to stay dry.
