There was an overwhelming response on the main talk list that this be tagged as maxheight on the way that has the restriction, ie you can't go under the bridge unless you are under x metres.

height on the other hand is used to indicate the maximum height of the bridge which usually exceeds the clearance for something going under the bridge.

An example given was a suspension bridge, the clearance for boats is less than the height the piers extend above the water.
