Have we all forgotten the marker=* key ?
I know, it is defined to describe an individual marker, and mostly used 
in the context of marking some utility.  The concept however and the way 
it is described perfectly fits the purpose here.

If we allow, or maybe better said document it's possible use, on a way, 
it could perfectly fit the purpose here, if we use it on a trail, it 
opens the opportunity to tag the makers individually or, when used on a 
way it indicates these type of markers are used along this way.

Much as we do and document other "attribute" keys for different purposes.
