  • Or path_link, not decided yet.

Proposal

To map pathway links with the tag highway=pathway_link or highway=path_link, instead of simply highway=pathway.

Rationale

There's already motorway_link, trunk_link, highway=primary_link, highway=secondary_link, and highway=tertiary_link, yet there's no tagging for cycleway links or pathway links available, leaving people to tag such links as simply "highway=cycleway" or "highway=path" even when it's really just a link and not a full trail of its own.
