In my area, sidewalks are most certainly NOT the norm. There are very few
of them, and where they are present they are typically separated from the
road by a boulevard. Other areas of my city have sidewalks that are right
up against the roads.
I can see the merit of representing sidewalks that are right up against
the road by using an attribute on the road. However for sidewalks
separated from the road by a boulevard I'd think it makes more sense to
draw them in as separate paths.
Just my 2c.
