What if some local community would be OK with retagging to
scheme used by StreetComplete? 

I can try talking with local community (Poland) as it seems to me that
this tagging scheme is the based on the most through research, 
consistent and potentially usable worldwide.

It would be probably a good idea to document also on the wiki - would you
be OK with copying this text into wiki or would you prefer to just link to it?

I ask for two reasons
- copyright issues of text itself
- if copied partially or fully to OSM wiki, on some page describing maxspeed,
people may obviously edit it as it would be on wiki
