Improving the Wiki documentation of `tracktype=*`

Continuing the conversation from:

I’d like to initiate a discussion to enhance the tracktype wiki. Here are my suggestions:

  1. Rephrase first sentence to " 'Tracktype is an indicator of the surface firmness of a road, with a significant emphasis on unpaved surfaces."
  2. Include a crucial note specifying that only the dual track segment where a 4-wheel vehicle contacts the ground is relevant.
  3. For grade1, substitute the wiki phrase “Usually a paved surface” with “Always a paved surface.”
  4. For grade1, incorporate the surface examples concrete:lanes;concrete:plates into the documentation.
  5. Introduce an additional column or two with more photo examples.

I’m uncertain about the appropriate grade for surfaces like dirt, sand, grass, mud, etc. Let’s discuss this aspect.
