highway is generally about grid importance and in some cases also about legal classification (motorways, footways etc.). "characteristic" is not something I understand in this context, maybe you mean "physical characteristics "? If so, then no. This was discussed and voted a long time ago and shouldn't be changed IMHO, as it has proven to work.

cheers,
