I think military_personnel=* is better. "Armed forces" in my opinion 
refers to the entire organisation whereas military personnel according 
to wikipedia refers to members of the armed forces. Maybe separate 
classes for types of military vehicles are needed as well?

I don't see a big need for this class. The access is already defined by 
the presence of physical rails. On the other hand we might need a key 
for trolley buses as they behave like buses but with physical 
restrictions on where they can go. There are no rails defining their 
access and I'm not aware of a tagging scheme for the contact lines.
