[Tagging] what does maxheight=none mean?

In Belgium the maximum height for a vehicle is 4m (on all roads, whether
there is a bridge or not). So without sign a bridge should allow vehicles
under the maximum height to pass.
There are exceptions, which requires a special permit (pubic transport).
Then the maximum height is 4.4m meters.
I assume that for exceptional goods, which also requires special
permission, the height can be even higher.

This is part of the traffic code, which each citizen with a driving license
should know. Will this be so much different in other countries ?

Thus the tagging should indicate that without sign, the bridge allows at
least vehicles with a height less than the legal maximum for vehicles in
that country.
