to change the name of the top-level tag 'highway' to 'rightofway'
the current tag for marking a right of way is highway. this was logical at the time it was conceived, but has become less so since the advent of highway=cycleway and highway=footpath, both of which are confusing and illogical. rightofway makes a lot more sense
will generally not be changed
<tag k="rightofway" v="<some right of way type....>"/>
all other tags will be as before
rendering will not be changed by this tag
The tag name is debatable - it may be better as right_of_way as that is more readable
