But not what constitutes a 4WD-only track, or how to indicate the
difference between 4WD-only signposted and "I don't think a 2WD can
drive here", which as I've pointed out isn't accurate, or how to
indicate only modified vehicles with diff locks, upgraded suspension and
winches are suitable, or how much driver skill is required.

I've seen previous discussions but no evidence of any conclusions. The
wiki page you linked helps only to define what a 4WD vehicle is
(Landcruiser yes, Forester no, rally car no). It's not nearly as simple
as 4wd_only=yes/no.
