OSM tags toilets that are wheelchair 'suitable' etc. So I see no problem here.

If you mean the difference between a mapper who thinks something is wheelchair suitable compared to a mapper who uses a sign or brochure to judge it .. use the source key for that.

Promotion? No tag for it, some places have promotion from time to time, some all the time, some none of the time.

If you want some indication on the level of confidence in the tagging .. we don't require it for any other feature, why start here?

Do you want a grading system for wheelchair accessibility? Similar to surface smoothness etc?
I'm not going there. And I would not put it on the key wheelchair=*
