Here I cannot agree
When I travel over the bridge I am not interested in the maximum height of the 
way which travels under the bridge.

When I travel under the bridge I am interested in the height limitation.

Going back to my multipart specification, trying to really comprehend the 

the height of the arch is a property of the bridge.
the max height which can go under the bridge is a property of the way / node 
beneath it

note that counter-intuitively, height > max height > clearance
