I'm not sure any of the current routers uses these country specific
defaults. My guess is that "normal" roads will always be allowed for
everybody except specified explicitly differently, and motorways and roads
with motorroad=yes will exclude certain slow vehicles. Cycleways will allow
cycling and footways walking and usually not cycling. If some country
specific defaults are different and nothing is tagged, it probably won't
work. Usually mappers do add "default" properties explicitly on roads and
ways, and the more mature a region is mapped, the more of those attributes
you'd usually find.
