thank you for noting this. The proposal currently suggests:

bridge=yes for "An unspecified bridge type along the via ferrata route"
cable_number=>1 for "For cable bridges the total number of cables, in
addition to bridge=yes"

I'd suggest to specify the bridge value more detailed than "yes".
bridge=cable or cable_bridge doesn't seem reasonable though, as it
seems to be a different bridge type:

zip_line as you point out isn't the correct term either.

Any suggestions what we could use?
