> There was some mention in this thread of the some lack of utility of "access=no" as a tag-value pair as someone usually has access to somewhere, it is just impeded by rules or physical barriers; I do agree with this in general.  If we move to the inclusion of a historical layer, then "access=no" could, in fact, be a default parameter for historical features as they are truly not accessible due to a time barrier.  --ceyockey

What I am missing in this discussion is that access according to the
first sentence in the wiki [1] is used "to describe the _legal_
access", so no, access=no shouldn't be used to mark a "time barrier"
(non-existing features).
