That's an access tag.  Are you saying that access tags convey physical 
characteristics somehow?

In the absence of any other evidence you might assume that "because I 
can legally ride my horse / bicycle / drive my car down there I will 
physically be able to do so" but as was pointed out just this morning in 
https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/2015-August/026194.html , 
that isn't always the case.
