A scale is not necessarily subjective if it is well defined. The key
"sac_scale" is a good example. "tracktype" would probably require a better
description but it is, imho, less subjective than the "smoothness" values.
Coming back to the OP, a dangerousness scale for bikers has been many times
discussed in my country. The problem is that even outside OSM itself, there
is no real standard and many local initiatives (at municipalities level) do
not have a common agreement about such scale. But it is clear for me that
access=avoid is a mistake and should be replaced by the legal access value.
If it is not clear in the wiki doc, then improve the wiki doc.
