Alpine routes

More and more I see mappers mapping routes in the Alps to 4000 m peaks accross glaciers, over rocks and walls as path.

Of course handy  when using a gps-device, but imho quite dangerous; even if these these 'paths' bear the attribute 'visibility=horrible, alpine_hiking etc.). Unexperienced tourist can use these map-visible 'paths' and interpret these as a 'walk in the park'.

This on top of quickly changing conditions (thanks to climate change) with glaciers disappearing, crevasses appearing and rockfall.

I think we should remove al these 'paths' without discussion (of course with the proper comment on the changeset).

As far as I know there is no highway=route feature that is not visible on the standard rendering, that could help....
