This all makes sense, but it seems that the real problem needs to be
solved at the database semantics level.  Patching it up in mkgmap
certainly is useful, but other routing engines should have a consistent
view.  I think we're really talking about "given a .osm file and a
particular way, how do you decide what speed you should assume one can
drive on that way".
