Two ACKs. BTW: Thanks for helping in cleaning up stuff, I do appreciate 
it ;-)

Finding a better place might be the harder part :-(

We already have cycleway=track, so is this redundant?

Probably should stay in highway, think of it as service stations at 
motorways, may even have a dedicated exit nr.
We also have motorway_junction and probably another one shortly, so this 
one seems fine to me.

move to properties: incline=10%, probably also add another one 
decline=10%. incline only is not enough, as the direction of the 
segments of oneway's might need to be different than the "direction" of 
the incline

remove completely, use incline with a percent value only

special case of a bridge, which is already a property - move to 
properties? This would also remove railway=viaduct as well
> bus_stop
while we need this tag, I'm still not sure how I actually have to *use* 
it. Simply a node in the highway or some small highway=service 
explicitly to/from it?

What I find strange here is to have bus_stop (only a halt) under highway 
and bus_station (a bigger station) under amenity.
