The concept is quite old
About 4000 relations are tagged.
I think with the current rendering in OSM carto of the outline
(man_made=bridge) most mapper will stop with the outline. One
main problem (bridge name is not highway name) is elegantly
solved with the outline.
I am not sure which questions are not answered by finding all ways
inside the outline with the same layer.
