[Tagging] Street exits

Where is the maxspeed 15 km/h, only on the crossing with the sidewalk
? Then that is similar to traffic calming tables in Belgium, where the
max speed is also lower.

I would just map a point on the road with highway=crossing;
crossing="dutch_exit_construction_type". and perhaps a small segment
of the road with surface=paving_stones; maxspeed=15 and a
highway=give_way node next to the crossing node.
In Belgium you are supposed to stop at each highway=crossing and give
way to the pedestrians waiting to cross the street. So the give way to
pedestrians is somehow implied by the crossing.

There is no traffic sign for this, it is indicated by the construction and lining of the join section. "If it looks like a driveway exit, treat it like a driveway exit" is the idea. Don't bother with signs, just use more sidewalk pavement.
