Meant to be used on any bridge. It gives the shape of a bridge, as
opposed to the highway(s) that it supports. There's also a type=bridge
relation to help with complicated multi-highway cases. Rendering
bridges even if the corresponding highway isn't rendered (such as
railway=abandoned) is one reason to render man_man=bridge, but
depending on who you ask it may not be the main reason.
