That's not a bad idea. "kerb=yes" should have some general meaning,
and if there is a more precise measurement available, store it in

Btw, I much prefer "kerb=yes" over "kerb=normal", because "*=yes" is
very widespread in OSM tagging vocabulary.


kerb=raised (ie, higher than normal, for a bus/tram stop...)

Now, since people *will* use kerb=no, how should it be interpreted? I
would say it would cover all of flush, lowered and rolled (ie,
everything "better" than kerb=yes)
