this depends on the situation. It might be "private"/"destination" or
maybe permissive (if anybody can go there). We don't currently have a
method to indicate special rights of certain people (B has to let pass
A, we don't have a way to tag this).

permissive would be any way where you can go (=nobody will shout at
you) but you don't have a legal right to do so, the owner simply
doesn't care or tolerates the use. The wiki says: "permissive: Open to
general traffic until such time as the owner revokes the permission
which they are legally allowed to do at any time in the future."
