[Tagging] give way and stop tag for ways

Hi There!

I would like to introduce give_way and stop alerts into navigation tools
such as OSMAnd.
For this approach a good tagging is needed. So when someone driving and
arrives to an intersection then the app would show give way or stop
depending on which road he/she is. (or nothing if the road is a priority

Can you help me define this in a proper way?

I think there are several options:

1. extend highway=give_way (and stop) to able to use on ways
2. define a new tag: priority_road=give_way (stop)
    link to existing tag
3. define new tag: priority=give_way (stop)
    link to existing tag https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:priority
4. define new type - priority:
    link to my proposal:

Thanks, Balazs
