Sorry, "useless" is a bit strong here: preventing fruitless legwork by
a mapper is usefull. But remember that the other mapper might have a
measuring tool, enough experience to assess the height, or that a sign
might have been added in the meantime.

A "note=no maxheight sign" tag should be good enough in this case.
Anything that makes the warning completely disappear from QA tools is
probably a bad idea.
