Is that not "tagging for an app"?
A similar case is bridges. Here the bridge tag could be on a segment of
the way over the bridge, the way under the bridge, a node on either or
and area round the bridge structure. Any of these may carry attributes
such as weight limit, headroom, etc. A smart routing app ought to be
able to work with any of these cases, using the headroom for a route
that passes under & the weight limit for routes that pass over.
This is the same for lock gates, which is a similar class of object -
the waterway passes through (when open) and footways, etc pass over the
gate (when closed). Wherever the tags are placed, any consumer app
should be able to cope.
