Why should we invent a new subtagging scheme when we already have one with crossing=* + crossing_ref=* ?

Tagging "unmarked crossings" does not make sense for me. An unmarked crossing is defined in OSM by a 
road and a footway sharing a node, there is no need for a tag here, as there is nothing special.

Otherwise I would need to set a node every meter on the road, tagging it "unmarked crossing" because 
I can cross the road everywhere.

And I hate it when the satnav announces a warning for the upcoming crossing, and there comes nothing 
the requires extra attention.
