in the case of maxspeed (but also other restrictions like maxweight,
maxheight, maxwidth) I find it useful to map both: the restriction on
the road and the maxspeed sign at the side of the road. IMHO it helps
a lot to have the positions of the signs in the editor (even more if
several mappers are active in the same area).

traffic_sign is a tag about a traffic sign. For the here suggested
intention (tag highways with implications from signs) I would use
different keys.
