I hadn't seen the "pipestream" before, and it does look to have some utility.

I'd much prefer that (legally) public roads be highway=residential/unclassified etc so as these will all be present in government data.

If it's private (even shared between many people) then it should be a pipestream or driveway or whatever so as to know you won't find it in a government based list and need to rely on survey on the ground or an aerial photo or whatever.

    either highway=service or highway=residential are OK with me

    highway=service can be achieved by reversion in this case and there  
    are approximately 5000 ways to deal with. Not all are lanes but I  
    don't want to manually search 5000 ways looking for lanes tagged as
