[Tagging] kerb=regular vs. raised

There was no change in the OSM database, so the project is not affected.
kerb=regular anyway is already in use but undocumented. Current
wheelchair/mobily projects should anyway consider this existing tagging.
As I described it needs clarity in the differentiation between raised
and regular kerbs and after the discussion here, I felt that this list
more agreed rather than opposed.
