Re: marking= zebra
Problem is that the zebra stripes can have different meaning in different
countries. In Italy it can mean, depending on the context: "foot-only" or
"foot-and-bicycle". In addition we also have additional non-zebra signing
for bicycles.
It would be much better to distinguish between "marked" and "unmarked" for
the horizontal signalling, without specifying the signalling details and
use foot=yes|no and bicycle=yes|no|dismount (?) to indicate the type of
traffic that can cross.

Re: precedence of vertical signalling over horizontal signalling
I am not sure about this here in Italy and even less so in other countries.
We do have here many crossings that consist only of painted zebra stripes
on the ground without any vertical sign.

Re: Zebra markings with traffic lights
This standard in Italy.
In Germany the standard for that looks different: two rows of dashed white
stripes (may we should call that Okapi), but the meaning is the same.
