It's already defined in the wiki (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Accessand
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:access%3Dofficial), and it doesn't
fit this situation: "The way is dedicated to a specific mode of travel by
law. Usually marked by traffic signs and exclusive. In Germany use is also

So access=* means "all transport modes have access * [by default]", and
*=official means "The way is dedicated to travel via *", so access=official
means "the way is dedicated to travel via all transport modes".

It may sound like "access=official" means "official access only", but any
programs which have encoded access=* and *=official will be completely
confused by such a designation.
