you mean, let's go a step back if we can't convince really everybody to map
according to the standards? ;-)
IMHO there is a fundamental problem to your proposal because you want to
connect 2 ways with a node which are in reality disjunct (and then you will
"fix" it with a tag that explains that there is no connection). I do not
believe that this will make things easier, my guess is that inventing
exceptions like this will confuse mappers and blur the idea of our
topological model.
It is also a significant loss of detail because you reduce the length of
the bridge to 0.


You call it brunnel, I'd call it tudge ;-)
