It's a smart idea. But I wonder if it's a bit too 'meta', a bit too
newbie-hostile. It makes a whole load of sense to me, but would
require a bit of explaining to someone coming to OSM for the first
time - and our learning curve is steep enough already.
Would it be possible to combine the two into one tag?
And in the occasion of an unnamed one:
It does mean you have to infer the 'type' from both the key and the
value (i.e. NCN51 -> it's an NCN route). But it seems a good
compromise to me.
Of course, Andy may be proposing to blow all this out the water with
STAGS at SOTM. :)
