The reason it is not done typically is that these features aren’t very visible (mostly underground) and hard to survey (you may not legally enter the escape ways usually, may not enter by bike or on foot).

To come back to my original question: I'd like to change the wiki to say 
that tagging name=* for the road and tunnel:name=* for the tunnel's name 
is preferred. Anyone who opposes this opinion?
