How one should tag surfaces:
- paved with equally sized, flat stones (
https://www.google.pl/maps/@50.061304,19.938305,3a,30y,270.75h,72.93t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1sBcAaihLoEYmtOQbTnOlxWA!2e0!3e5?hl=pl
)
- paved with roughly shaped stones, only partially flattened (
https://www.google.pl/maps/@50.059029,19.940113,3a,30y,276.76h,68.16t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sJiyUyJYQx9Fqv_dC1-18_A!2e0?hl=pl
)

I tag in the first situation as surface=sett and in the second as
surface=cobblestone.

Bur according to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:surface both
should be
tagged as surface=cobblestone. cobblestone:flattened is mentioned
(without any description).

To further complicate situation it seems that both surfaces should be
described
as sett - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sett_%28paving%29

Meanwhile, on taginfo -
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/surface#values :
- cobblestone 119 216
- sett 6 261
- cobblestone:flattened 2 176

Cobblestones, sett mistaken for cobblestone and flat sett are clearly
different
and I hope for way to differentiate between these, better than using
smoothness.
