I would strongly recommend to not use type=traffic_signals because we
have already a tag highway=traffic_signals. This would cause
confusion. Furthermore, type=traffic_signals does not describe well
what your prososal wants to do. With your relation, you don’t want to
represent traffic signals but you want to represent traffic signal
phases. Something like type=traffic_signals_phase would IMHO be
