Uh, what? 34 votes is one of the largest votes of any proposed/approved
feature on the wiki.

Then I think you misunderstand it.
Take a look at
most require two tags at most. The only one which reaches five
additional tags is the last one. Which doesn't fit into the
bridleway/cycleway/footway paradigm anyway, and is one of the most
complex examples to be found.
You don't like highway=path, fine. If your tagging needs are met by
bridleway/cycleway/footway, then I'm glad for you. But it's not
adequate for all situations.
Don't make up bullshit just to trash-talk that which you don't understand.
