I'd like to point out that not all footways are sidewalks.
Sidewalks/pavements/whatever_you_call_them are a particular case of a footway.
We shouldn't deprecate footway, but instead expand (i.e. add details) to it.
Once again, I'd like to point out my attempt to make a coherent proposal (see
my other message in list)
