Thanks @Martin, thanks @Mateusz.

I will document this for the dutch hiking project, suggesting the role
For hiking, stop, stop_start  and end are same as start. I think I will use
the role for a few trails. I will have to discipline JOSM validator though.
It complains about a template that doesn't know the role start.
