I have just read on WeeklyOSM that OpenRailwayMap may start to use 
importance=* tag for ranking railway stations instead of 
railway:station_category=* :


The proposition is 7 years old:


and is quite generic. I think it would help for example with rendering 
airports without resorting to less clear properties like size:


and it would be good to have universal scheme instead of 
railway:station_category=* or flights_range=*. Looks like it is being 
already used and quite popular:


What do you think about making this scheme official?
