Yes, a tourist route may sometimes be identified unambiguously, for example
if it is a noexit route to a historic site like a castle, where you have to
take the same way back as you came. Nobody could use this route to commute.
But these are very few of all routes. Most of the times, you will use any
route for commuting, while tourists use routes that either take them where
they want to go, or where the route itself is delighting (or ideally both).
So almost any route could be commute=yes, and many might be interesting for
tourists (although this goes more into the recommendation direction than
describing unquestionable hard facts).

Cheers
