Proposed features/Surface Quality
|Definition:||Improved and universal quality marking|
|Rendered as:||Depends on a renderer, nothing by default|
It should be clear just by looking at an example:
|3||Excellent quality, some minor faults may be present, but they don't affect driving comfort.|
|2||Quality is good enough for car, but cycling is not pleasant. A driver must be prepared for anything.|
|1||The road is drivable, but not at maximum permitted speed. There are places where a driver must slow down. Driving in car is not comfortable.|
|0||The worst quality, road is hardly drivable even on 4WD. Lots of holes, branches and such. Speed is minimal.|
Of course, for different surfaces quality is measured differently. Below are documented grades for most used ones.
|3||Smooth surface with no or parallel faults.|
|2||The surface is smooth, but with perpendicular faults, for example, between concrete blocks on which asphalt was laid. Occasional holes, easyly spotted at a distance. Possible колейность.|
|1||Definitely not fresh asphalt layer. Lots of holes, some of which can be spotted only after driving in them.|
|0||It is asphalt only by name. It can be spotted here and there, but mostly it is holes, sand, gravel and other stuff, a driver should proceed very carefully and at a minimum speed.|
Also suitable for concrete:plates and concrete:lanes.
Also suits values of grass, sand, mud, earth, dirt. Tag value should probably be more generic (unpaved:grade?).

Will probably never happen. This page documents the tagging style the author uses, but it won't be approved because there are many other schemes for marking road quality.
