I've formally written up my Bridge proposal, as mentioned here a week or 
two ago:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Proposed_features/Bridge

In summary, I propose replacing the various bridge and bridge-related tags:

bridge=yes
waterway=aqueduct
highway=viaduct
railway=viaduct

with a single "bridge=<type>" tag:

bridge=yes
bridge=aqueduct
bridge=viaduct
bridge=swing
bridge=...

In other words, make all bridge-like structures values of the bridge tag.
