So, you have currently : "highway=* + bridge=yes + layer=*", right ?

Some proposals:
- replace the whole by "bridge=broken" or "bridge=destroyed"
- just add an "access=no" or "access=destroyed" or "access=broken"
- combine both
- in any case, create a special new rule for rendering your big red X and
don't just add an extra tag to the existing ones (like "destroyed=yes")
otherwise the majority of the applications will not see the difference
between your bridge and a normal bridge (same story as "disused=yes").
