I've been playing around with routing using the osm data. Speaking from
that perspective, I think I'd prefer:
- highway=unclassified; surface=unpaved if it's passable by car
- highway=track; if it's not (or only by suitably built cars)
Basically, for a normal route using a car, highway=unclassified would
then be fair game. highway=track would not.
