This is a discussion about access keys and classes of vehicles. What you 
said (access=no motorbike=yes) didn't seem to refer to the problem in 
the first mail, but seemed like a general example. It's just never a 
good idea for try to tag anything other than whats shown on location.

The appropriate tagging for "nothing except passenger cars" would be 
access=no car=yes, but not hgv=no, motorcycle=no, bicycle=no, .. (trying 
to forbid anything but cars).

This would be like mapping a street by tracing all the area around it.
