As I understand it, while there is some overlap (especially in Germany)
it’s not exactly a duplicate of the access=designated tag.
Designation=* is used to describe the official classification of certain
routes (which might be roads or paths).
While access=designated is used to say “this route is officially
designated for [xxx] type of traffic”.
For better or worse, in Germany it looks like they’re one and the same
thing: a route’s official classification is basically “officially
designated for [xxx] traffic”. There’s nothing like the UK’s
“Restricted Byway” classification.
