I'd think this should be a relation - not a way.
At the moment the proposals says it is only a way.

And it might be better to place it directly in the emergency key?
Say emergency=evacuation_route??? Humm emergency says it is not for relations. Arr well.

Rendering... yes .. a rendering for emergency use would be good.
Possibly this can be done for small areas rather than the world.
Emergency evacuation centres, routes etc.

Evacuation routes may also be made for other things .. e.g. fire .. so I'd add a '/*' at the end to accommodate things we have not though about.

There were a couple of recommended changes to the RFC[1] and while I agreed with them I 1) failed to make them and 2) got side tracked on a couple of other initiatives.  Now that it's hurricane season, again, here in the Eastern U.S. I've come back to this and am hoping to get this completed this time.
