How do you propose these "potential routable" fallback routers to handle highway=Bürgersteig (a sidewalk) vs highway=Fahrradstraße (a local street where bicycles have priority)? How will a router know which highways can be used by trucks, buses, pedestrians, other than with a giant lookup table? And if you do have a giant lookup table, wouldn't be easier to have it in editors rather than in every single data consumer? --Jarek _______________________________________________ Tagging mailing list Tagging@openstreetmap.org https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/tagging
