this is not a case of "tagging for the renderer" as it is usually referred
to (using a tag differently from what it was intended to obtain a certain
result in rendering).

By the way, there once was a "osmarender"-subtag for curved roads (should
the way be "bezier-treated"), which sounded like a rendering hint, but
actually could be seen as descriptive data (stating whether the way
geometry is approximating a curve or is actually "stepped"). Looks as if it
has been completely "cleaned up".
