Absolutely - it's certainly worth recording if you have the time and
information. Similarly 'unpaved' is worth breaking down into dirt,
gravel, fine_gravel etc.
But OSM is iterative - data gets better over time. So if you're trying
to make a lot of changes fast, paved/unpaved is much better than
nothing, and someone can come along and make it more detailed later. I
generally tend to concentrate on the paved/unpaved split but I'm always
delighted to see when people have done more detailed tagging.
