Yes, I like this idea. This would mean that everyone who need it could 
define its own mapping of the access tags in the style file. And it 
would be IMO a cleanly defined interface without uncertainities in the 
meanings of the tags. Furthermore it is extensible, if in future new 
tags are introduced in the osm data, e.g access=private or 
rollerblades=yes or whatever.

But I would expect some perfomance drop if each tag needs to be 
translated into the internal one.
