You can argue that "the software should XYZ" but the fact is that
roads are ways in OSM, and of all the "standards"- this is one that is
most well established.
It is not just part of the renderer, but provides key hints to the routers.
This is well documented on the OSM wiki, the OSM books (both Free and
non-Free) and in the OSM video tutorial series.
Unless you can provide patches to Mapnik, Halycon, and at least one
OSM routing engine, then what you'll be doing is putting garbage in
OSM, which will be quickly removed by the many dedicated volunteers.
