  • I approve this proposal. MikeCollinson 04:12, 1 December 2006 (UTC). I've been using this already independently. I've assumed highway=crossing refers to pedestrian crossings.
    • on [Map Features] page is does state for railway=crossing : "A point where pedestrians or vehicles may cross". Dmgroom 23:05, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
  • I approve --PaulY 18:18, 5 December 2006 (UTC) - do you make it a node on the railway and the highway it crosses?).

  • I disapprove this proposal. As Joto wrote, the fact that a point is a level crossing can be inferred from a road and railroad meeting at one point. There's no point in adding this tag just because *one* renderer cannot do without it. -- Eckhart 21:26, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
  • I disapprove this proposal. I see it like joto and Eckhart. Elrond 12:03, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal. We'd be virtually the only mapping producer which didn't have a specific marking for level crossings if we didn't have this. I approve unless we can engineer the renderers to specifically display a marking/symbol whenever a node is shared by a road and rail. Richard B 12:57, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
