Agreed. I raised this in 

in connection with https://www.visitsnowdonia.info/ffordd-brailsford-way,
which is a signposted bike route (two routes, in fact) around North Wales,
but entirely unsuitable except for experienced cyclists on road bikes - much
of it is on highway=trunk. A new route_type= tag on the relation would be a
good way to go.
