Hi John, do you any have specific examples to share?

In DRC, you can find pretty long service roads within mining concessions
and leading to extraction sites.
Interestingly, within logging and agricultural concessions, we usually tag
similar "industrial roads" as highway=track + access=logging / agriculture

Can this distinct tagging be justified in some ways?
