There already is a perfectly fine value for marked crosswalks, which is
called "uncontrolled". Replacing this with the barely-used "marked" (100
times fewer uses than "uncontrolled") seems unhelpful. After all, the
issue that gave rise to the "zebra" value isn't to distinguish marked
from unmarked crossings. It's to distinguish two different types of
marked-but-uncontrolled crossings.
