Since you are in the Netherlands, you might want to join the
Netherlands talk list. The hope is to get consistency of the tagging
within each country.

The difference between a track and a path is more in the surface
quality, rather than the width. A path is normally paved, whereas a
track is more gravel, or more likely 2 dips, where tractor wheels
have been, often with grass in the middle.

Here there is usually some form of sign to say something is a
cycleway/footway. Even if there is (which is sometimes the case), it
will still get tagged as such.
