I'm trying to figure out how to tag the multiple archways in milwaukee. I think it would be a nice detail to add since most of the old brewery buildings have them. Thanks for any help.

I would tag it as a gantry shown here in this Wiki article.

The tagging I would suggest is:
name=Schlitz Park

Alas will such ever be rendered on the map?

Likely not on any standard maps soon. Imagine how much noise that would create on the map.

Folks, let's not let cultural biases make us forget that in some countries some of these can be really massive, , and deserve to be on the map.

If you really want it to appear on the map, you could make it a building which crosses the road, with a roof:shape=round, roof:material=metal, and an appropriate estimate for roof:height and building:height. (And probably leave the gantry tag on too). Then, make the part of the road directly underneath have a building_passage tag.

These arches seem to go from a metal advertisement for a company to historic buildings like this one that is here
