Displaying custom route symbol on maps?

Hello,

I was wondering about future possibility to show an symbol tag other than osmc:symbol as a route symbol on mapping applications. Currently (as far as I can tell) only osmc:symbol tags can be shown, ideally wiki:symbol tags could also be shown.

The wiki shows how it is possible to add a tag for a svg symbol, for example hiking route symbols that can’t be describe with symbol geometric shapes. Many trails have rather complex route markers, like the Pacific Crest Trail.

Is there any reason why more complex logos shouldn’t be shown, or is it just up to application discretion?
