Given the rich discussion, particularly about pickup spots, I'm proposing
we limit this proposal to the tag definition for way only. This will allow
discussion of pickup and dropoff spots modeling to progress to some
commonly agreeable design.
Please see the updated proposal:
I suggest this limited scope proposal move to voting at the end next week.
Thank you for everyone's input and feedback thus far.
