Certainly a different approach ! Quite a good one really. It meets my
criteria  of giving a new mapper some guidance on what he/she should

Add in taginfo data.

And maybe a list of competing approaches so, again, its clear to a new
user what the options are.

I do think we'd need to have some (usage determined ?) end point
however. Who is going to register their approval of, eg, highway= this
far down the track ?  

I think data consumers also need a bit of certainty too.
