I too don't think the 'non-physical' thing is that useful.

I think there should be a better description.

To me things like sport=*, surface=* and width=* are what I call 'sub 
tags' - they add detail to some feature be it a road, a building. etc

They might be of the 'group' properties

and that says
"This is used to give additional information of a general nature about 
another element."
