foot = yes => legal right of way
foot = permissive => permissive path
Unfortunately, Potlatch has been adding lots of * = yes for a while by
default, so it's hard to tell whether the contributor understands the
implications of the =yes tags and removes them if they don't apply. So
I'd have more confidence in the *=permissive tags more than *=yes.
