What about tagging the presence or absence of traffic signals with a
subkey, e.g. crossing:traffic_signals=yes/no?

I've already proposed to replace crossing=island with
crossing:island=yes [1] for the same reason, that is, because when
using crossing=island, it's not possible to specify if the pedestrian
crossing is marked or not.
