"case made there very clearly for (just) rendering the bridges"

Before commenting in this issue please carefully read existing comments,

"I don't like tagging for the renderer and normally avoid it, but in this

Please, avoid tagging as rendering as method for maintaining reputation of
OSM/default map style. This is not helpful.
