... fair comment ... the English/Welsh system is indeed pretty much unique -
so the two level key is not a bad idea - apart from the large number of
paths already tagged! (:>)

Again I find myself in almost complete agreement with you. I found
highway=cycleway a particularly difficult concept given that bicycle rights
are somewhat ill-defined in rights-of-way lore (notwithstanding the 1968
Countryside Act).

They do, however, make pretty much sense in many other parts of the world. I
see no good reason why the (very UK specific) right of way tags should not
be something like uk_row:foot=, uk_row:briddleway= and so on.
