In that example, "Cross Bay Walk - DO NOT ATTEMPT" violates "name is 
only the name".  It may or may not be possible to justify "Cross Bay 
Walk", but the "DO NOT ATTEMPT" is not going to be a valid part of the name.

Unless there is a sign saying "unsuitable for pedestrians, horses, and 
vehicles", or similar, I would say "access=discouraged" violates "do not 
tag for the renderer".  The wiki specifically says that an official sign 
is required before using "access=discouraged".

"warning" appears to be non-standarised, and also subjective.
