Like I wrote above:
I'd expect the width to be the width of the bollard and maxwidth the (in
theory "legal") width of the vehicle that can pass through (e.g. number
taken by reading off a sign) and you might want to add
maxwidth:physical=1.22m (the actual maximum width of a vehicle or person
that can pass through).

If there were
maxwidth:physical=1.22 tagged (e.g.), I'd expect the 1.2 coming off a sign
and the 1.22 being measured.
