One option would be not to render private roads at all, so a user can be 
presented with a map of routes they know they can go along (useful in the 
countryside), though having said that, I guess they would be useful for 

Can Mapnik render one way on top of another? One option for service roads with 
public access would be to show a service road underneath and a footway on 
top, much as Ordnance Survey and others do.
