In Melbourne people sometimes use the term 'unmade' for non-sealed roads.  So 
perhaps something clearer like gazetted would suit Australia.   Someone on 
another list mentioned 'non-existent' being better for non-native English 
speakers.  But I think this doesn't really matter as application interfaces 
can translate it anyway.
