And what happens for intersections that are both surveilled and do
have traffic lights?
You just add another distinct node just for that?

Also, I think the idea to call it *speed* camera is not that great
since it can detect/trigger/be used for other traffic-related fines,
such as illegal overtakes, level crossing related illegalities, etc.

And why, if is already used, is not documented on the Map_Features
page? Is a discussion as this one necessary first?
