That's a good summary I can second. Peter, there are probably a lot of 
TOPs that are trailheads or where a trailhead is part of them. But there 
are other TOPs that are not trailheads in the spirit of the original 
proposal (to my understanding) nor the consensus that has been come up 
in this discussion. I pointed out a couple of the latter earlier (I did 
not search for those explicitly they were the first ones that I randomly 
selected from an overpass turbo query).

I also still stand by my earlier suggestion: Mark the trailheads as such 
(preferably as a point on a path/track/etc.) with hw=trailhead. Mark the 
TOPs with a separate node or in some cases better even area and a new 
key/value pair designating it as such. Several suggestions have been 
made in this thread (tourism=, leisure=, designation=, ...). If you 
must, use the same node for hw=trailhead and whatever=TOPorWhatNot but I 
would advise against that.
