As an result of this diskussion (no strong opposition, some general
remarks, some endorsement) I added "kerb=regular" to the tagging example
list in the wiki and adjusted hight descriptions (with values discussed
here). If there is further need for discussion and changes, it could be
carried out in the wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:kerb
