Your desire for this is somewhat understandable - but this clashes with
the current documented goals of OSM-Carto and the aim of OSM to map the
verifiable geography and not subjective opinions.

Secondary tags refers to tags that have no distinct meaning on their
own. Think of a feature that has an 'access=no' tag or
an 'intermittent=yes' tag and no other tags - these do not make any
sense on their own, the only get meaning together with other tags (like
a highway or waterway tag in these cases).
