I can see this as potentially useful, except for one part:

For values, see access <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:access>=*.
> The default is learner_driver

In general, the access restrictions globally for motorways and
motorway_links is so varied as to have no rational default other than
access=yes unless otherwise explicitly tagged.  However, I would go more
modal-specific, though.  There are some situations in some places (I don't
know the exact specifics or I'd have already tagged it or at least floated
a note for someone else to take a look at if it's not likely I'm going to
get to it soon) where learners are OK, except people who are learning to
drive a truck.  So, <mode>:learner_driver=* might be better.
