*please* can we come up with something that makes some sort of sense for
these?  Animals and candy!?  This is about as international-unfriendly
as you can *get*!

These make some sense, but don't we already have tags that cover all
these use cases?  I don't even know that we need to tag them as
crossings, since they shouldn't even have nodes at the "intersection"
since the roads don't intersect.

This one makes some sense, though the word "refuge" isn't too clear on
the meaning.  "island" makes more sense to me.
