Sounds close to what I've been doing. I don't recall whether I tagged
the road in question as 'unclassified' or 'track' without looking it
up, but I certainly added smoothness=very_bad, surface=compacted,
vehicle:conditional=no @ snow. It's a numbered and placarded county
highway, but seasonal and limited use, and I wouldn't take a car with
low ground clearance on it even in dry weather.
