This seems a workable tagging schema for me that would
solve some existing issues and record this kind of info.

This information is verifiable and OK to map in general.

Overall it seems that all_genders=yes/no is a well designed tag.

> State that "unisex=yes" is equivalent to "male=yes, female=yes"

Not entirely sure.

Maybe state that it was used both in male=yes and female=yes
and all_genders=yes meaning. And that replacing by more clear tags
is likely a good idea?

Or mention that dominant use was male=yes, female=yes meaning,
but also sometimes used in all_genders=yes meaning?

BTW, you may be interested in

It is definitely not mandatory, it is also OK to simply start using a new tag
(see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Any_tags_you_like ),
but may help confirming that this tagging schema will work as intended.
