highway = footway? highway=track?

I don't understand what linear-feature-for-travelling you can't
currently tag *at all* with one of the "highway" list. Maybe you have
a specific example, and you could provide a full description and/or

(Sure, footway in other contexts would probably mean "sidewalk" or
"pavement", and sure, you could call it highway=footpath instead, but
that's not the current convention.)
