The main part (the lower one) of these is simple and it seems can be mapped
with one area relation and 2 ways (1 upper 1 lower), but the 2 single steps
(or maybe I should say detached steps, because they obviously are somehow
part of the whole stairs) pose a problem. I guess we lack a good method to
map single steps, e.g. a single way with appropriate tagging, which would
be drawn along the riser. barrier=retaining_wall (e.g. together with a
height tag) comes close geometrically, but seems missleading in general ;-)
