That's a theoretical risk and I wouldn't support adding any such tags,
but in this case there is already a well-used key "golf=*" for golf
course features such as greens, holes, bunkers, etc, and golf cart
paths in a golf course could be considered part of this system of

The ID presets now add highway=path (or =service? I forget) when
golf=cartpath is selected, so this should not be a major issue.

The current proposal requires that highway=* be used along with this tag.

Some mappers might forget to add the highway tag, but since the
feature will not render on the main tile layer (Openstreetmap-Carto
style) or in most other map styles, this should give a hint that
something is missing.
