First of all I actually approved the proposal but later realized that
having variable keys is less than ideal. I am currently working on an
alternative proposal and I was planning to announce it within a few days
(I have only limited internet access the next couple of days).

But here it is.


A short comment on the proposal: The actual conditions go into the tag
value. The transport mode (vehicle catagory) and the direction stay in the
key in accordance with current practice for access restrictions.

Feel free to comment on it, preferably on the talk page.
