David,
I like this proposal, it should work well for the areas I've been
mapping. However I have been using the proposed sloped_curb=yes [1],
though I haven't been happy with it. There's also the proposed
kerb=lowered [2], which seems equivalent. I'd say either kerb or ramp
should win out, but I think kerb is more versatile.
