[OSM-talk] When is a bridge not a bridge?

In view of some changes that I've seen going through in my area
recently, I'd be interested to know people's opinion on what constitutes
a bridge. In particular to what extent are the approaches part of the
bridge? I know I'm likely to hear wildly contradictory answers and
there's probably no right answer.
Are the ramps part of the bridge? If they are on solid embankments? If
they are a lattice structure supported on pillars, perhaps like
intermediate supports of the bridge itself? If they have parapets or
not? Or do people feel the bit marked as bridge should strictly be only
the span (or spans) itself?
