No, treating a ford in the same was as a bridge does seem like a good
thing providing it is not done before renderers and routers have caught

Tagging ford=yes was not mentioned in the wiki page however.

I do feel that small groups holding private discussions on the wiki, and
then making decisions and changes based on the views of such a small
group, like some sort of QANGO is not good. Such discussions should be
public on the mailing lists.
