[mkgmap-dev] default style improvements

I agree that bad tagging should be fixed in OSM but:

1/ some of the tags you mention here are acceptable

2/ it is a continuous job as some common mis-uses just get repeated

3/ its time-consuming

4/ it may be difficult for a non-local person to know exactly what the
highway really is

5/ my intention was to make the default style handle most of what was
thrown at it in a sensible way.

and, not quite related to your point:

6/ Joris has suggested we should avoid mop-ups (generating a slow
routable 0x07 Alley), and I was working towards this but find a large
number where mappers have put the road name as the highway tag and I'd
rather have these on my map.
