[OSM-talk] [tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - incline up down

I just tried to apply the 'architects' convention' of steps 'always' being from bottom to top. Then for unrelated reasons I reversed the way. Unlike 'oneway' this does not reverse the direction of the steps - i.e. the software doesn't know about the architects' convention. So I have to conclude that - at present at least - the assumption of an implicit sense is risky.
