I think that's a good idea. I read the original email, took a brief
look and thought "yeah, we should make it more verifiable but that
explanations are too long, let's see what happens" :)
I'd add a column with a brief explanation on how to verify/measure/
objectify the respective value based on your sentences.

PS: I would never tag "smooth paving stones with seamless connections"
as excellent. At least none I have ever seen. The top tier should be
reserved for surfaces where you don't notice any bumps whatsoever when
riding skates, skateboards, bicycles with >>5 bar tire pressure on
them IMHO - or we need another top tier since the current definition is
"usable with vehicle type X", but a router would need a way to
distinguish ways that are "usable for thin rollers" from those that are
even better to prefer them in its algorithm for those vehicle types.
Soooo I guess my grumblings became off-topic and I'll stop now ;)

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
