Hi Martin,

Okay that explains it very well. I have a friend with a farm who  
explained a little to me and the obligation makes perfect sense. But  
would you tag such ways as "private" or just leave them as default  
access?  Farms aside, I struggle to think of examples of permissive  
ways. The only thing I can think of is something like a pedestrian  
shortcut across a golf course, or a pedestrian way through an arcade  
or shopping centre.
