[Tagging] highway=crossing and crossing=*

Nodes don't have an orientation, so I find it useful to put crossing=* tags
on the footway/cycleway, so I can render it with a nice set of black and
white stripes.


I also add the tags to the intersecting node, since some people (eg the
cycle layer) make use of that data.

Leave it alone.
