Yes, that sounds reasonable. Remember, it is still a very much personal thing. There is no right or wrong answer, just guidelines.

Yes, I think this page should be renamed from 'Australian Roads Tagging' to 'Australian Tagging Guidelines' and cover all guidelines we develop through discussion on this list.

These will be in the talk-au archives somewhere at http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-au/
