>More generally, does highway= indicate the physical appearance as
surveyed -- or the intended use, as designated?
First map the feature: Use the highway tag to describe how it looks
Add the legal status: Use designation=* to add a legal status (e.g.
designation=public_bridleway) as the most important tag in England & Wales.
The horse=yes tag is useful for global users who don't pick up the
designation tag in their routing services.
This is as documented at
Quote: "Note: Rather than being influenced by the name of the access
provision, tag the feature according to what you observe on the ground. For
example a 'Public Footpath' that runs along the route of a farmer's track
should be tagged as highway=track rather than highway=footway."
Hope this helps,
