I once opened a thread saying that the term "crossing" is contradictory 
with "passage pour piétons".
The English term restrictively suggests being perpendicular to the road 
and is tagged on a node.
The French concept covers zebras that are drawn on & along -- e.g. half 
of -- the road, is tagged on the highway on which the passage runs, and 
they do exist. Unanswered problem: how to tag which side of the road the 
paint is on.
That feature meaning a place where pedestrians can walk safely, even a 
full area applies.

The answers were typical of "tagging for the renderer", e.g. disguising 
sidewalks as being on the road.

How do we tag that without being "fixed"?

All the best,
