A while ago
I started a thread about usage of highway=living_street in Africa. The
resulting consensus was that, while unpaved residential streets in
Africa are living streets in practice, they are not legally classified
that way - and therefore the correct tagging is highway=residential...
But participants in the thread were mostly experienced with
French-speaking Africa - so I cannot rule out the existence of a living
street legal classification in other locales.
