Hello Bert,

I like your idea,but I am not sure if the marker=* key perfectly fits here,
makers as they are defined now are not meant for ways.
I tend to extend the key which was from the beginning meant for trails ...

BTW I just updated proposal page by description how poles and cairn are
different from guidepost and osmc trail marking
