I'd say "yes" from my personal experience, but that might be biased. I'm
inclined to use the destination* tags on a relation in the same way as
those on ways.

I'm not aware of any users despite of hiking maps (i.e. waymarkedtrails.org)

Using a vehicle type (bicycle, foot) is already used several thousand
times on the relations and even more often on the destination signs
themselves. So I don't see a problem to just use e.g. hgv as well.
We should add a statement in the Wiki documentation.
On the other hand, I wouldn't use access tags like maxweight without a
(As always, that's just my personal opinion)
