Ways With Split Surfaces

I feel like the tagging for surfaces is insufficient if the split is parallel i.e. along the way instead of lateral i.e. crossing the way.

The general consensus is to simply tag the worse surface but this IMO doesn’t do much justice for cyclists and wheelchair users because sometimes, the worse surface implies it’s a bad way to travel even though it may very much be actually the more preferable option over alternative routes.

Consider this way:

It’s consistently paved with paving stones on one side and asphalt on the other but is not a separate foot- and cycleway but a shared one. Even then, when I cycle on it, I almost never driver over the paved part, only on the asphalt one.
