[talk-au] tagging 4WD and dirt roads - I give up.

Well, I'm one of those European countries with almost no unpaved roads -
and therefore also think they should be rendered differently. A driver
encountering an unpaved road here is usually quite confused if that's
really an official road...

But looking at some of the older discussions around this (e.g. [1] or [2])
I wouldn't really expect any change to the default rendering anywhere soon.
So I wonder if anyone ever considered to provide an own map rendering
taking the surface/smoothness/4wd_only into account? As the default
rendering doesn't really match the traditional coloring scheme in Germany
there's a special "German style" available ([3]).

But I assume the problem is to have enough ressources for this...

I didn't entirely follow this thread so I hope this isn't something which
came up earlier and which I have missed.
