I strongly disagree. The surveyor must only tag information that is
verifiable. They should NOT tag
"I_think_the_router_should_send_bikes_down_here=yes". Notice the
"I_think" - that means it isn't verifiable.

In other words, the person "best placed" to set the criteria for what
they want to ride on is *the user*.
