paved/unpaved are completely insufficient for many cases:

For example:

sett and cobblestone are paved values but you'd want to avoid them with bikes

the unpaved surfaces are very different: some are smooth and others are very rough, together with water (rain), frost, etc. different surfaces will behave very differently
