A couple of comments:
For "highway" there is no "residential" class, in towns it would be a good
idea to distinguish between unclassified through routes (used to get from A
to B) and residential streets.
I'm not convinced there is a need for "pathway" as this information could
be distributed amongst "highway" (which could be extended to cover paths in
addition to road types) and "restrictions".
Speaking of the "restrictions" key, rather than a generic "access" of
permissive or public, would it not be better to specify this separately for
each vehicle type, e.g.
foot could be either permissive, public or no
horse could be either permissive, public or no
car could be either permissive, public or no
I say this as there are some footpaths where there is full public access on
foot, but only permissive horse and/or bike access.
