routes (well, some renderers do show them, but osm carto doesn't) 
(Rendered by some as you say)

I think most, if not all, of the tags you list .. I'm not using... other 
than the ones I've made notes on... while they may be long established 
they may not be used by new mappers and thus be less populated than they 
could be. Hard to measure, but that is my take on it. I think there are 
keys that could be rendered that simply miss out because they are not 
frequently used or are not present as a tag option.
