I'm using tertiary for similar roads in South Korea.
Please update http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Highway_tag_usage with
any changes.
I moved information from other pages to this page
to unclutter the highway tag page. My idea is that this page will give a
general idea that can be applied to all
countries and then each country can get more specific on their project
At the bottom of the page is a chart with some examples of what some
countries are doing.
I will expect more variety with the lower level tags.
