Hi John, dear friends,
Just to add that we've been collecting road mapping tips (and other
goodies) here on Google slides (in the HOT drive):
http://bjohas.de/go/mmintro (see p. 65).
We've said this:
Can it be passed by a vehicle? → unclassified (or better) / residential
/ track (not path)
Does it connect distinct villages/areas where people live (running
between and through villages)? → Unclassified or better (not residential
/ not track)
Does the road only run within a village or residential area (not a
through-road) → residential
Does the road only run to fields (agric. use)? → track
Is it not passable by car (4x4)? → path
Note: A metal roof arrives by vehicle → roads to houses with metal roofs
are unclassified or residential (not path).
Do you all agree?

It's come up in the OSMand mailing list that these aren't shown at higher
zoom levels. Whilst mapping specifically just for the rendering system is
frowned on in this case it is supported by the wiki.
If it connects settlements then according to
it is not a track.
unclassified or minor road surface unpaved is a reasonable default.
