Shure, thats how I do this right now. Anyway, looks like I did not get the
correct translation for "landwirtschaftlicher Weg" these are usually
asphaltic cycle/footways which I usually map as highway=service.

I think openstreetmap has a huge potential for hikers and cyclists, as there
is currently no good proprietary digital map-stuff in a lot of countries in
contrast to digital map-stuff for motorists.

I think we could enlist many of these people more easily if we have a
generic Data Model which is less motorist-centric.
