That would work for airspace, but what about for airport classifications 
themselves? I can't find anything on Wikipedia, other than individual 
articles on "regional airport", "domestic airport" etc.

Honestly, I think the use case of someone using OSM to determine whether 
they can land an international flight at a given airport a bit of a 
stretch. A far more likely use case is a renderer deciding whether or 
not to render a given airport at a given zoom level.
