+1, I am doing it usually like this:
highway=footway (or cycleway) and footway=crossing on the way (from kerb to
highway=crossing and crossing=traffic_signals / zebra / uncontrolled etc.
on each intersection node of the street(s) with the crossing way.

i.e. there is no "highway=crossing" or "crossing=*" on the way, instead the
crossing information there is conveyed as a kind of footway.
