Yes. But this was a bad example. My second example of incline is much 
more useful for "everyone" (except hikers and mountainbikers or cyclists 
who like to go uphill).
It should work just like the link pois to ways is working, but based on 
tags. Plus the possibility for stopping the execution (because then you 
can have seperate actions for big streets vs small streets vs 

Oh and also introduce a max setting (besides the obvious limits of 0-4 
for roadclass and 0-7 for roadspeed) as for many kind of streets high 
roadspeed is actually devastating. The max however should be the last 
action when several rules are enacted on the same street. So if 
roadspeed=1 and then three times +1 roadspeed and once -1 roadspeed and 
max_roadspeed=3, max_roadspeed is set to three and not two....

This would really be a great addition because it makes the style-file 
less abstact and more focussed on how one would assess the routing from 
human perspective (it's going up heavily, I have to drive slower....).
