I certainly did:  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Access

access=yes The public has an official, legally-enshrined right of access,
i.e. it's a right of way.
access=no Access by this transport mode is not permitted, public does not
have a right of way.

foot / bicycle / etc. are, I thought, effectively subtags off access=*.

I'm not very familiar with access=permissive and how it differs from
access=private.  It seems to me to be a distinction that's difficult to
verify, or at least jurisdiction dependent.  I like the idea, but I'm not
sure about how to implement it.

I also don't see how anything but a strictly legal implication can make
