That proposal is very broad , it defines implicit areas of any kind, 
steps, ramps, flat bits . I think that is too much in one proposal to 
consider and detail.

This proposal only does steps. Just steps. It details how larger step 
areas, > say 5 m width, can be mapped.

Consider in this proposal;
should the upper and lower ways be tagged with highway=footway so as to 
connect the two laterals?
should the laterals be tagged with highway=steps
That may aid editing, rendering and routing...
