Here's an example  where the name of the tunnel seems to be tagged as
"name". I'm not sure what the roads name is (might be Schlossbergtunnel,
Hegelstraße or Rheinlandstraße). Tagging it to tunnel:name would
definitely clarify on this.
So is there a consensus that one should tag "tunnel:name" instead of
"name" for the name of the tunnel?
