Road surface as checkbox for Dirt
We over here in Latvia don't have a lot of good ways. We have rather complex road network and our biggest problem ir road classification. Even some of our primary highways are dirt roads but they are maintained very well. We need a checkbox to describe a road surface as unpaved and maintain our road classification/representation right. Can you help us make our country's wazers happy?

That would leave dirt / jeep trail for the jeep trails (always dirt).
There are places in the world where almost all roads are dirt, and in some cases, that leads to the standard practice of only using dirt for jeep trails.
The US has same issue in rural areas. Even roads that under normal circumstances would be Primary roads due the roadway numbering system are sometimes unpaved. We don't need for users that have the option set to avoid dirt roads to be routed on them -- regardless of the segment type.
The same is needed for Estonia. Current 4x4/dirt road is not working well for major/minor roads.
