[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - highway strip

proposing a new value aeroway=highway_strip for landing strips that are
normally used as a part of a highway, but can be closed either because
of a military exercise or emergency landing for aeroplane landing. The
tag should only be used when the strip has been dedicated as an
emergency landing strip, other possibly suitable emergency landing
strips should not be tagged.

Currently there are a few highway strips that have been tagged with
aeroway=highway_strip (in addition to the proper highway=* tag). Others
have been tagged as aeroway=runway, which causes the strip to be
rendered the same way as an aerodrome runway, which isn't sensible.
There should be a way to separate strips that have been dedicated as
emergency landing strips but are otherwise in use as a highway and
normal runways / dedicated emergency landing strips.

The proposal can be found at
