Volker did not write that "surface" information did not matter, he said that "paved" doesn't hit it. For example a road paved with cobblestones (or even worse an antique roman road) are very hard to use in bicycle (mostly) and you'd generally want to avoid it, still it would be "paved". cheers, Martin
