OK, I can live with that. Is it okay when I change the wiki for crossing* so
that it makes
clear that highway=crossing should not be used on ways? I think I just have
to add the list of the
three alternatives.  
I also agree with Warin that the 3rd alternative (crossing=* only on the
minor way) is not a good idea, 
so I think these two alternatives should be mentioned:

Use crossing=* like this:
1) add it to the node that is tagged highway=crossing 
2) optionally add the crossing=* tag to the way that crosses the major road

Better ideas?
