Is there a notable physical difference between a "byway" in England and 
Wales and a "track"?  "Byway Open to All Traffic" and "Restricted Byway" 
are both legal definitions (i.e. "designation" tag), but is there a 
physical difference too?

The one class that I'd possibly suggest as being missing are quad-bike 
trails used by farmers in upland areas, but I really don't have a good 
suggestion as to what to tag those as.
