 I think that is very country specific, not something that can be tagged worldwide.
In the UK, beyond speed limits, there are no rule differences between urban and rural roads.
However you have me curious, how do you see the rules as different?

As a data consumer I also prefer to have the maxspeed be tagged explicitly. That's true for mapcss styles (in JOSM) and websites showing a map with maxspeeds as well. KISS.

If it's just the traffic rules urban vs. rural, there's the tag (with 37 000+ uses)


where ** is the two letter country code.

Don't count on anything ever deriving the rules (like maxspeed) from that tag, so tag the maxspeed anyway.

Sorry Kytömaa, if you "need" to tag the maxspeed anyway, then what's the point of that tag?

Are we saying that maxspeed is a prioritary tag, one so important because of its applications that it has to be always specified even if there are other tags that imply it?
