I think maxspeed and maxheight are different, as maxspeed is defined also
when there is no sign (default maxspeed), but maxheight is not defined when
there is no sign. There are still considerations to keep in mind (like
vehicle classes and their max height) to infer for practical reasons some
default maxheight, but that isn't exactly the same as default maxspeeds.

Still I agree, we could tag this derived maxheight value and add a
maxheight:source to say it is implicit.
