Legal definition vs."duck typing" - there is a bit of both in
Openstreetmap tagging... But because "living street" has a precise legal
definition in Europe, involved mappers chose not to confuse the issue by
using a different one.
Then there was the question of differentiating large residential streets
from minor ones... Some bright spark took initiative by tagging a large
part of Dakar's residential streets as highway=service - that has been
universally perceived as a very bad idea.
I mostly just highway=residential with a surface=* tag but now that you
remind me of those discussion, I'm thinking that a key differentiator is
the presence of a sidewalk. What about:
Doesn't that feel like Africa already ?
