I would prefer a dedicated way for the kerb, and would not tag it on the road highway. Also using a node at the intersection of the kerb with the crossing footway/cycleway (at crossings) seems safe. 
Eventually it could be considered adding kerb information on a sidewalk way (as the lesser evil). 
On a road way the resulting fragmentation would be undesirable and the kerb information belongs more to the sidewalk than to the road way (IMHO).
