I was meaning "describe its physical appearance".
For example, for:
I could tag it as:
highway=track (physical appearance), or
highway=footway (legal status), or
highway=disused (evidence of use).
But presumably the designers of OSM intended only one of these meanings
for the highway tag. But I still don't know whether it is physical
appearance or legal status. The wiki seems to be mixed up on this. For
1. highway=secondary (*legal status* - B road, and physical appearance,
condition, etc. is irrelevant).
Actual width, etc., to be set as separate (optional) tags.
2. highway=track (*physical appearance* - wide enough for farm vehicles,
and legal status is irrelevant).
Actual status, designation, etc., to be set as separate (optional) tags.
