For roads that are about to be built, but where any construction work hasn't yet been started.

Used in the same way as highway=construction; that is, you set highway=proposed together with anything between proposed=motorway through proposed=footway to proposed=motorway_junction.

See proposed=* for more guidance.

In case of mapping it - always include sources confirming that it is actually a serious project and that such road geometry was selected. source=* fits well for this purpose.

It is perfectly fine to delete highway=proposed where it is not verifiable that roads is about to be built.

Common problem with highway=proposed road is tagging roads that are certainly not "about to be built". On picture (faint line from top-left to bottom-right) - http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/290450974/history across Bering Strait- see Bering Strait crossing on Wikipedia
