Well I prefer if it it is kept like right now, and surface=* is not 
automatically considered as unpaved avoidance and the tag itself is not 
present in OSM database. This leaves more choice in the style-file to 
abuse the unpaved tag (and allows the choice if for example 
tracktype=grade2 is considered to be avoided or not via "avoid unpaved 

The default style-file of course should have something like below:

highway=*&  (surface=unpaved | surface=dirt | surface=sand |
surface=ground | surface=gravel | tracktype=grade2 | tracktype=grade3 | tracktype=grade4 | tracktype=grade5 | sac_scale=* | smothness= ........) {add unpaved=yes}
