Interesting. I would classify this as a trailblaze, but not as a
guidepost. A guidepost is something that shows me which destinations a
way leads to. A trailblaze is a small sign that shows where the way is
I'm already following.
To me a guidepost is a guidepost, no matter whether it has fingers and a
post or not. That's minor details that can be handled by minor tags.
I think this matches very well the style many other tagging rules are
using. E.g. a "highway" is any kind of way, no matter the size and its
intended use and how it relates to the common use of the term "highway".
