Sorry, I am not making myself clear enough. This data can be modified and
improved by OSM mappers. It's not that different from power/switch/voltage,
primary/secondary data discussed recently or other data, like VHF channels
in harbors/waterways. It's data that is available to trained people. For
San Francisco specifically mappers can rely on the public dataset to
double-check and in other parts of the world they can follow more
appropriate rules.

It's also worth reiterating that a tag of this sort already exists in the
database, although it's not officially recognized.
