We are only reiterating the fact that being paved or not is subjective to
the renderer/router/data consumer, based on the intention of the particular
user, and thus a tag for paved=* is counter-productive.

Compacted usually means compacted earth (the soil has been packed more densely, 
but no other hard surface has been added). A dirt road simply has the native 
soil exposed, with perhaps some grading done, but again no topping added. To my 
mind, neither of
these count as "paved".

    These are more than 90% of values for surface, categorize them as
    paved/unpaved the rest as unpaved.

    surface=

    asphalt
    unpaved
    paved
    gravel
    ground
    dirt
    grass
    concrete
    paving_stones
    sand
    cobblestone
    compacted

    paved=yes will remove then need for parsing those last % of surface=*
    values, not sure it's worth it. To think that there is only one
    definition of paved=yes, is a big mistake. There are few tags in OSM
    that are specific enough to mean the same thing all over the world.
