I'd consider this mapping failure actually. More than believing in
gps- and imagery-precision the mapper should care about topology.

you can do this with the area-relation (not restricted but restrictable to foot)

interesting, but maybe difficult to do.

can't you already do this with current multipolygons? (OK, only for
areas, for ways there are routes).
