[Tagging] steps parallel to escalator

Hi Tobias,


Would you also set conveying=yes? I assume logically one would not.

However, this means that a renderer that doesn't understand
"conveying:lanes" renders the way as steps, meaning that people with
luggage or difficulty walking may not find it. Thus it may be better to set
conveying=yes in addition?

Of course, some people may prefer stairs.

Do you know how conveying:lanes is rendered e.g. in osm online, osmand, etc?
