the reason why these new things are using mkgmap:tag syntax is
because I think they should be easily distinguishable from any other
tag that may appear in the OSM input. i.e. the mkgmap: prefix should
achieve that. Things like road_speed and road_class are special 'magic'
tokens that the style engine recognises, they are not related to the
XML tag/value pairs in the OSM input. So, keep using road_class and
road_speed as before but use the mkgmap:tag syntax for the values that
are introduced by this new capability.
