[Tagging] Correct use of height with kerb

Dear all,

I'm doing some work cleaning the edits we've done around Padova for the 
local plan for the elimination of architectural barriers (some 
references here: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3370704).

The height of kerbs, in this context defined as the nodes at the 
intersection between sidewalks and crossings, is quite an important 
element for the evaluation of accessibility of sidewalks and crossings. 
I think the agreed tagging system is:

kerb=yes/lowered/raised/flush + kerb:height=<a number><unit>

as described here 

Around Padova I found some inconsistencies that I'm going to correct, 
but I see similar ones around the world and I'd like to ask you if you 
think they should be corrected, when found.

Here the questions:

  * should the tag barrier=kerb be always avoided in these cases and
    deleted when found? (
  * is the tag height=* to be always changed into kerb:height=* ?

Thank you,
