[Tagging] Variable Message Signs on Highways

Hi I'm new here so forgive me if this has been discussed before.
I have access to a suitably licensed dataset from Birmingham City Council
showing details of Variable Message Signs
(overhead or roadside electronic displays of matrix text or pictograms for
motorists), but I cannot find anywhere on the wiki a comprehensive tagging
schema for them
(Unfortunately the location data is way out when examined with satellite
imagery so it looks like a manual job rather than an import. There are
about 1200 items in the dataset)
My initial ideas are along the following lines:
traffic_sign:forward =variable_message where way is not oneway
traffic_sign:backward =variable_message where way is not oneway
variable_message_model = operator's description from the dataset e.g 4x13
variable_message_type = matrix
variable_message_type = graphic
variable_message_type = graphic;matrix
variable_message_information = parking
variable_message_information = traffic
traffic_sign:location = overhead (where the sign is mounted on agntry
spanning the highway)
traffic_sign:location= roadside ( where the sign is mounted on a pole)
Should the node be on the way?
Has anyone mapped these consistently anywhere else? Do I have to create a
proposal page on the wiki and go through a formal vote?
