[OSM-newbies] Tagging "Unsuitable for motors"

Is there a convention for tagging UK roads signed as "Unsuitable for
motors"? These are roads that are technically a legal right of way
for cars, but are deemed unsuitable for normal cars and are typically
not maintained by the authorities.
highway=unsurfaced seems the closest, but such roads may actually be
surfaced and are deemed unsuitable for other reasons.
It seems to me that this is a place where OSM can do better than
other maps which typically mark these roads as normal unclassified
highways, despite it being a fairly important distinction for someone
trying to navigate using the map.
