incline=up/down has some use for marking ways without clear overall incline but with many up/down hops. Some people would prefer it to be a separate tag but there is no any known used alternative or clear replacement or clear deprecation of that value[1]

This use was confirmed by asking all people who used this specific tag[2]

There is also opposition to treating this value seriously, see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Key:incline&diff=2410960&oldid=2404953 and https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Tordanik&oldid=2411029#incline
