I have one near me.
Some are more of a 'route register' - you state your intended route as 
there are several choices, if not here then later. Probably best to 
include this in any definition.

The ones in Austria sound more like a 'visitor' or 'accomplishment' 
Probably best to separate these as "man_made=visitor_register"?
