suggests surface:material, but then again, surface:material=asphalt,
surface:condition!=maintained can be worse than some surface:material=gravel.

It seems best to introduce a mkgmap:paved tag that can be translated
into by style files.

For what it is worth, I tried your v2 patch with the following, but I was
unable to convince my Edge 705 to suggest using a forest path that it
used to suggest until some weeks ago.  (In other words, it avoided the
unpaved roads no matter what the routing preference was.)
