I notice that two pages have recently been marked as "deprecated", in favour of:

   http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:kerb

I find the latter unhelpful; it assumes that all wheelchairs are the
same, and seems to leave no way to say that a kerb is "dropped" (using
whatever term may be preferred), if the editor does not know which
/type/ of dropped kerb it is.

I would prefer, say:

    kerb=dropped
    dropped-kerb=rolled

instead of, say:

    kerb=rolled

since the former allows the use of:

     kerb=dropped

alone.
