not sure what you mean by "administrative class", but usually there aren't any problems deciding for the class "motorway" or the motorroad property (they are signed as such).

Not sure about the width of lanes (probably there is something in lane tagging).

You forgot many more tags that might be relevant for highway tagging, e.g. "width" (of the whole road), "lanes" (number of lanes), "lit", "oneway", access restrictions, tracktype for tracks, service for service roads, sidewalk as highway property, smoothness, maxspeed, maxheight, sac_scale, etc.
Not all of them should be set on every road of course.
