You seem to be making a number of assumptions.

1) That "tree-lined" is a useful independent property of objects in the
same way that "lit" is.  I disagree.  It is, at best, a trivial property.

2) That "tree-lined" (which requires a query tool to find) is more useful
than a tree row for end users.  I disagree.

3) That, one day, routers might preferentially route along tree-lined roads
rather than non-tree-lined roads, in the same way they preferentially route
along lit roads.  Do any route along lit roads?  I can see that a router
offers walking routes might eventually prefer lit routes.
