I rearranged the presets in JOSM and am prepared for the usual bashing :) .
Tracks and paths have been reunified into one menu entry only, so the convenience menu shortcuts to the various types of tracks and paths are past. OTOH, I have introduced dedicated menu entries for combined foot and cycleways:
The types have been included as popup menus into the dialogs. Besides tracktypes and hiking scales, I also included mountainbike scales, while more special tags for mountain bikers can be used by including an existing set of externally maintained presets:
Obviously, the dialogs are completely overcrowded. We will not be able to stuff any and all tags that will develop in the future into JOSM. Be prepared that I will do some major cleanup work some day.
