I am not sure if my answer via GIS made it to the list ?

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.

Eg: http://www.transportparadise.co.uk/cyclemap/?zoom=3&lat=51.74075&lon=-1.25238&layers=B0TF

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

Leave it alone.

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.
