No, that's not what I'm suggesting at all. What I'm saying is that all
roads are at least L-roads. What I'm also saying is that some should
be tagged as tertiary and others as unclassified, based on a judgement
call of how reasonable it would be to use that road as part of a
through route to somewhere.

I don't think so. Especially where a road leads to, say, a village on
a peninsula, you'll get roads that are important enough to be tertiary
(or higher) even though they may end once they reach the village.
