Correcting use of `alt_name` for bridge ref numbers

Hello fellow mappers,

I would like to suggest a mechanical edit to correct a tag value in Quebec.

I have noticed that the bridges use the alt_name tag instead of the bridge:ref tag when tagged on ways that have a bridge=* tag.

I suggest a simple change with an automated edit, move the values of alt_name to the bridge:ref key.

The following Overpass Query can be used to find all the uses of alt_name on bridges

out body;
out skel qt;

This edit could be carried out in JOSM by simply selecting all the ways and changing the alt_name for the bridge:ref key

Thank you
