first of all, it's confusing having emergency= overloaded like that.
second, this is a case where you can pick and choose from the wiki (not
situation with descriptions of the usage of highway=trunk in the US, of
are many incompatible ones in the wiki.)
i wouldn't be hostile to emergency=yes as an access modifier except i
don't like the
overload with equipment.
however, as i said in another posting, i had one of those "we're doing
moments this morning, details of which i sent out earlier.

i presented a lightning talk on it at SOTM US, here is a blog posting
covering roughly the
same ground. i would note that i've pitched this to firemen, fire
chiefs, and an NYS State
Senator and there's general agreement that it would be really useful
mutual response calls for municipal and volunteer departments, and for
out of area
calls for municipal departments.
