No - it really isn't.  That was my entire point.  I'm willing to bet a 
small round of beer in the pub up the road that almost no-one walking 
past that info board will say "oh look - that's a trailhead for the TPT".

The problem with trying to shoe-horn other features into a particular 
definition is that it dilutes the value of the features with that tag 
that have already been mapped - in this case trailheads where "everyone" 
will agree that they are trailheads.

That's not to say that the features that you're trying to record aren't 
very important - I'm sure that they are, and it would make total sense 
for a Dutch-focused transport, cycling or wanderroute-oriented map to 
show them.

Best Regards,
