the more generic we are, the less information we convey. On the other hand it has to be weighed against complexity to use the data, and we might decide differently based on the kind of feature. I believe we can still do a lot to make our data more useful for people who search specific things besides routing on roads for normal cars, bicycles or pedestrians where we are already quite good.
