I think we don't need a tag like this. All we need is

highway=footway incline=Percentage or highway=steps wheelchair=yes/no

Giving the percentage just to mark the pure existence of a ramp would make it necessary to measure each slope. Not very practical as few mappers carry a water level with a scale. Apart from that, there are inclined footways in any place with hills which do not represent access ramps. I could live with highway=footway ramp=yes/no but the original proposal fits best in my eyes.--Jesuzphreak 23:31, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

implies wheelchair = yes

It should be made clear, that this tag implies wheelchair=yes, so a ramp next to steps where you can push your bike up is not ramp=yes.
