The object of this proposal is to add the new value "walk" to the existing key "maxspeed".


Reasonable:

Lots of laws (e.g. maxspeed in pedestrian precincts, or maxspeed for allowed bicycles on footways) do not set a precise speed, but set 'walking speed' (between 2 and 20 km/h) as applicable law. This can be usable for other highways than living_street, which is the only highway type with an implicit maxspeed=walk (in some countries, presumably).

This new value is very important to set most-accurate default (local law) maxspeeds.

Rendering

There shall be no rendering by default, as this is more important to routing software.
