[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - (traffic signals group)

Okay. I’ve made some clarifications to the proposal (avoid confusion
with coordination of traffic signals along a length of road …).

The remaining problem is the tag value “type=traffic_signals_group”. I
agree that “group” is not the best choise. We could maybe switch to
“type=traffic_signals_set”. (I would avoid “intersection_set” because
the relation isn’t restricted to intersections, but could theretically
also be used for pedestrian crossings on straight road; probably there
is not so much need, but I don’t wont to exclude this use case.)

So our choise could be “type=traffic_signals_set”?
