Well, "highway=road" means "road without classification" while
"highway=unclassified" is an actual classification (yes, confusing) and
actually means "minor roads in the public road network which are not
residential and of a lower classification than tertiary".
That's why I proposed highway=road as it basically means "unknown
classification". A lot of those I have encountered are better tagged as
tracks than either residential or unclassified, but that needs review of
people actually looking at some local info.
