Don't be sorry. Think forward. Help find a name for the missing tag.

There are no redheads signs, because they would be discriminating.
There *are* signs for like "only on mondays", and there's an approved
tagging scheme for this:

Or reduce all access tags to yes or no.
That's not where OSM is heading to.
Tagging is getting more and more fine-grained.

What use case? Do you suggest tagging for the renderer?

Don't you believe me? I know for sure that I saw signs with that wording,
but I certainly have no photo. So believe it or not.

You can find similar signs here:

Fine. You see that *=destination has a distinctive meaning.

Yet again, you are arguing towards access=yes/no.

We *can* do (a), your'e just lacking motivation. You won't get us forward
with such a mindset.

I do not care about (b), as that's not a tagging issue.

I will answer questions like this when the RFC is out. At the present stage,
I need suggestions for the tag name. Please get back on the topic.
