I agree completely. This is something that should be improved: we need 
at least some rough categories for aerodromes. Because it does not make 
sense to me at all to render a grass strip exactly the same as a big 
international airport.
This is open since years but nobody really took care about this
Of cause this will not be easy as the regulations are different in the 
different countries. But we should find some categorization. And any 
approach is better than the current situation.

Best regards,
