For class of segments, I've also seen residential used, so I've started
to use it. A typical residential street is narrow, probably has cars
parked both sides, and route planning software should normally
de-preference the route unless it's actively trying to go there.
Defining as residential means that map rendering software might put a
thick greyish border around the roads, making a built-up area more
obvious, if you're not referencing landsat, until we can get area support.
