I am against proposals attempting to dictate how things should be rendered,
in specific renderers.

Can I recommend rephrasing it to a more neutral
"data consumers can choose hadle specially (hide, avoid in routing, display differently) paths that"

Note that in any case "vote on wiki demanded to change rendering" will not 
automatically result in changing rendering anyway.

I would encourage explicit tagging of wheelchair=no and similar, at least at start
via_ferrata=yes will be rarely used and more general tags would be useful.
