I’m doing it occasionally, in theory I would expect these ways should be mapped, as they are there, depict the structure of the area, etc. but there are just so many that whatever I’ve done in this direction is still very few with respect to all that would have to be done. There are situations where I think it is more important (both, in dense urban areas the shared (among the residents) driveways to internal parkings and backyards and in the countryside longer driveways to places that are not directly on the road). The least interesting are those short ones from the garage to the street in single family detached housing estates, but still they create crossings with the sidewalk so there is some kind of relevance.
