Even though this is locked I feel the need to comment on the argument of "if Waze didn't want X on the map why is there a type for X".

All of the road Types and landmark Types exist because they are the types used in the TIGER data set that Waze imported for NA. They exist because they're in the other data sets, not from any intentional desire by Waze to have those types/objects and has since gone through at least one Type reduction/consolidation that I know of.

I thought I had made this exact comment earlier, but maybe i never got around to it. It's also for the same reason that there are road types available (stairway?) that should never be used in Waze.
