Finding proposals is no big deal in osm. What to think of

Would be better to have an integrated discussion on proposals. As long
as this won't happen I will start my own proposal shortly, greatly based
on Ben's highways:

It's about all trails/tracks/unpaved roads. Every way will be tagged on
four properties:
1. whateverkey=road/track/path/trail (>4m/<4m/<2m/<1m).
2. access(foot/cycle/horse/...)=highway/permissive/provided/private
3. network=whateveryoulike
4. surface=tarmac/concrete/gravel/sand/rocks/mortar/lime/grass/......

Gr, Rik
