I thought you were one of the ones that was arguing that a track must be
exclusively for agriculture or forestry? Did I misremember?

I know a number of shared-use foot/bridleway or foot/cycleway that are wide
enough to take a double-tracked vehicle, and I occasionally see
double-tracked maintenance vehicles on them (for instance, to plow snow,
regrade a bridleway, or re-lay the asphalt on a cycleway). I don't think
that makes them tracks.  Locally, `highway=path foot=designated
bicycle=designated` or `highway=path foot=designated horse=designated` are
common tag clusters.
