This would only be correct if this path is mainly or exclusively for
wheelchair users.
I presume thet the majority of hiking routes for wheelchair users do not
exclude other users, they are likely to be shared with pedestrians,
possibly also cyclists.

I guess the "suitable for wheelchair" property of a given concatenation of
highways requires that all its components have wheelchair=yes or
wheelchair=full tags.
If we are talking about a signed route for wheelchair users, than the
tagging could go on the route, even though my gut feeling is that it shold
in any case co on every member highway of the route
