I would go further and say they are probably an England and Wales concept based on that even in Scotland rights of way law is different. The same goes for stiles.

Andy's map does render them and is the best solution for countryside mapping. 

I think getting things like stiles and kissing gates into the standard style would be infinitely improbable. The style does seem to be urban centric. The loss of colour on tertiary roads is one area where the style has become less friendly in rural areas.
