Hi Alexander

the objective of the http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Highway_Tag_Africa wiki page is to propose a classification that both represent well the reality of african coutries and let's construct a hierarchy of roads that is simple to apply. 

We do not change classification of a road that cross a town. It stands as primary, secondary or tertiary.  For the distinction between tertiary and unclassified, I suggest that roads interconnecting villages are classified as tertiary. Unclassified is then reserved for roads that go to smaller villages and hamlets (more or less dea ends. The same with tracks, this is for connection from villages to farmlands.

Good evening Pierre,
I can start with that tomorrow afternoon after my dayjob. However, I can't tell tell long that'll take and it'd be good if someone could look over my work as soon as I've done some substantially.
There's still one question puzzleing me though; at which level should roads inside residential areas be split and become highway=residential? Paths remain paths, tracks aren't mentioned in the guide. I assume unclassified roads become residential, but what about tertiary? Primary and secondary certainly not.

 that the basemap is there we can take care of promoting
