[talk-au] Questions: faint and one-way walking tracks

I was at Wattle Flat (north of Bathurst NSW) last weekend doing a  
couple of walks. Last time I was there 4-5 years ago I did a walking  
track (I'm sure it was a track then), but now it's hard to see in many  
places, or absent for large sections, but still tagged by yellow  
arrows nailed to trees. I've got these questions:

1) For one walk, as the arrows are only placed on one side of the  
trees, it is only possible to follow the arrows in one direction.  
Should I use oneway=yes for this walk? (The track is non-existent for  
this walk.)

2) What's the best tag to use (other than highway=footway) to mark a  
track with no physical features on the ground (other than the arrows)?  
I am thinking of either trail_visibility=good (as there are arrows  
present) or trail_visibility=bad (or even trail_visibility=no) (as the  
track is completely absent).
