I don't see the problem of possibly conflicting tagging: it indicates an error. If you ask to only put the crossing tag on one element then you'll likely get the same errors, just that you can't find them automatically any more. On a bigger crossing over several carriageways there might also be both present: uncontrolled (zebra-) crossings and traffic lights. I'm adding the crossing=* to nodes on the carriageways that are crossed, and believe that it belongs there.
