Hi Dave,

The highway=byway tag is deprcated:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dbyway

The legal status of UK Rights of Way now belong in the "designation" tag,
and the highway is tagged with an appropriate value (mostly track, but
could be service if part of the route is now a paved road (e.g. an access
driveway to a property along the right of way):

Best,
Rob
