All crossing between a sidewalk and a driveways I have tag have the same 
type of kerb on each side. It's why I use kerb=lowered without any need 
for left/right details, it is for the whole crossing.

Therefore I never needed to ask myself how I tag a useless mixed layout 
A crossing with a raised kerb on one side and a lowered kerb on the 
other side is as unusable for wheelchair as if it was raised on both sides.
Maybe a new value like kerb=mixed or bad or nonsensical :-)
For a T crossing (one street and a sidewalk), maybe kerb=raised because 
feature is the same (forget the lowered side as it is useless)
I agree it is not perfect, this crossing also :-)
But currently it is the only way to have a full working routing between 
2 sidewalk hoocked to a way.
