Operator is verifiable, whether it's done is an entirely different subject.
Tracktype is verifiable against a visual scale:
As I said, guessing is not useful for OSM, so smoothness, as it's
implemented at the moment is, to use one of it's adjective tags -
"horrible". It needs a photo related grading scale similar to tracktype.
Back on subject:
Just because other tags unfortunately use subjective guesswork doesn't
give you the right to do the same.

Hardly surprising when your proposed tag is 'illegal'!
So what if a the dumps/houses/graveyards are illegal? That has nothing
to do with OSM.
As others have pointed out OSM is a geographic map. Tag what you see on
Illegal is a subjective adjective & has no place in the physical world
of OSM. Again, please drop this proposal.
