Perhaps. I'm ambivalent about this type of usage (i.e. I don't plan to do
this myself, but if someone wants to I'd rather them use these tags rather
than the primary kerb=* key). I'd say we should get more input before adding
kerb:both/left/right, and we should probably keep that as part of an
secondary proposal, if someone wishes to do use those keys.
