It might be considered duplicative, but what should a data consumer do if confronted with a surface=* value that is unknown to it (and the wiki)? We aren't talking human intelligence here where an informed guess is possible. Should such a way be considered paved or unpaved for purposes of routing? From that point of view, Richard's proposal gives a lot of clarity.
