it is indeed always possible to take out all the values to make
them keys.
but if iD only enters the marking in crossing_ref like the other 
editors, the crossing key will again indicate whether or not there is a 
light. so is it useful to change the name of the key there too?
experience shows that if you want to change everything, in the end 
nothing changes because many contributors have started from immobility 
when the solution is too large. that is why I think it is useful to 
focus on how to correctly inform the type of ground marking

It's a good idea (and I like that the propal focus on one tag/issue
in order to hope that this will facilitate its adoption
