In my experience, there's a lot of variation in how golf cart paths, 
cycleways, sidewalks, and driveways are each constructed, and a lot of 
overlap among the four, yet we have a distinct highway=* value for all 
but one of them.

Anyways, I'd think of a golf cart path as essentially a miniature road 
for miniature vehicles, as railway=miniature is to railway=rail or 
leisure=miniature_golf is to leisure=golf_course. I think there was some 
wisdom in separating those keys on the basis of their scale and how 
they're used.
