It's a good start for a solution from Nathan, but it would need a direction tag in order for the renderers to know which way the steps went up & down. A similar(ish) problem was brought up recently regarding routing over pedestrian areas. They don't have an intrinsic direction in the way that linear ways do. Was a solution found? Off the top of my head I'm thinking of a line within the area that defines the direction. it would have to be linked to the boundary by using relations(?) Hatch/Fill areas in CAD programs such as AutoCAD that have an angle attribute. Does mapnik & others have a rotation angle for fills?
