I'll take that bait.

Forget OSM for a moment.  Imagine a spiderweb of hiking trails on a
conventional map.
Chances are, some of the trunk trails will be more primary, and drawn using
a heavier line.
It's useful to map viewers, and thus is done.

The *concept* of hierarchy still exists for hiking trails, motorcycle
routes, paths, stairs, walkways.
Now we need to figure out how to consistently tag that concept in OSM, so
rendering engines
can start using it.
