highway=via_ferrata is supported by almost all renderers(*) and you will

Not only is there no need to remove it but it is highly counterproductive.

via_ferrata_scale on a highway=path would be considered (yet another) troll

Both tags are marked in use since a long time, just let people map whatever 
they want.

(*) Those which are targeted for outdoor users display it and those targeted for
general audience deliberately don't
