I mean the same as highway=footway, or 
{add access = no; add foot = yes} [0x16 road_class=0 road_speed=0 resolution 23]

My reasoning was that sports tracks may or may not be closed from the 
general public. When not in use, they could be used as shortcuts by 
pedestrians, but not necessarily for other means of transportation.

The wiki http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dtrack says 
that leisure=track is to be used on nodes and ways. This hints that you 
should add area=yes when you mean an area.

When it comes to sport=cycling, I guess that we could add bicycle=yes, 
but are there really so many cycling tracks in the OSM data? Wouldn't it 
be simpler to add the bicycle=yes to the source data, to those tracks 
that are available for the general public outside sports events?
