Ok, sorry: direct Streetview links seem to crash my Opera today, so I
only watched the first one.

Technically, foot traffic would be allowed at road margin from that
point on. Of course, it's something you wouldn't really want to do
unless you had to; still you can. Next to where my girlfriend lives
it's not unusual to see people carrying bags and walking on the margin
of a primary street (a statale, for the Italians reading) to go from
and to a mall that is located a couple kilometres out of town. I guess
this discussion would go back to the classical one, "does foot=no mean
that it's not legal or that it's not safe/possible?". If it's about
legality, then foot=no would be wrong there.
