I'm quite aware of that, and that's why I think there should be a
landuse=right_of_way, completely separate from the "highway".

I wonder, how do others define "highway", if not as "a path of travel"?  It
contains such things as roads, sidewalks, and dirt paths, and presumably
also includes paths of travel which are completely unbuilt (the unpaved
grass on the side of the road gets a "highway" tag, right?)."
