I agree with you that we should define all the max* keys in the same
way. But it would actually make much more sense to achieve that
standardization by reserving them all for legal restriction. Look at the
current situation:

 legal limit according to all sources
 legal limit according to all sources
 legal limit according to all sources
 legal limit according to all sources
 legal limit according to infobox,
 min(legal,physical) according to introduction text

The odd one out is clearly that introduction of the Key:maxheight page.
And that also used to clearly state that the key refers to legal limits,
until this edit:

Now while this was a long time ago, I don't get the impression that it
was based on a consensus when looking on the talk page.

So imo the easiest way to get back to a consistent situation is to
revert that change.
