Trail=main (usually there is some backbone path that all trails branch out from in a large park.) 
Trail=official (officially designated trails in a park, where that matters) 
Trail=unofficial / social (shortcuts in a park or a city) 
Trail=illegal (social cuts that exist but are specifically illegal because of posted signage to stay on official trails, or ones that are go into an area signed as "do not enter". Most should be mapped, but perhaps not rendered - this would solve not only the different renderings ability to render more detail, but also remove them from the main map and keep people from "adding" them since they would be in the mapping data already. )

This would solve path/footway/trail/social path issue and give some more hierarchy to path (and cut a piece off of =path's huge blanket smothering non-motorways.
