[Tagging] Draft Proposed Relationship Area Steps

I'm pretty sure you don't need relations to define wide steps. All you need
is an area (area:highway=steps) and one or more ways that connect the
bottom and the top (we can decide if the direction of ways sets what is up,
or incline=up). Just set the step_count=* tag, and you're good to go.

In case of more complicated steps, you can add a new tag, step_count:left=*
and step_count:right=*, and put those ways on the dividing line, where you
have a different number of steps on the left and on the right.

That would be much simpler for everyone, from mappers to data consumers.
