As per the discussion last week about Sidewalks, I'm re-opening the
sidewalk proposal as per:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Sidewalk

We've already had some preliminary discussion on this tag and there's
been very minimal disagreement, which is a good sign for its adoption.

I do want to emphasize that this proposal does not in any way replace
the existing highway=footway tag. This will remain separate and
untouched.

Also, if accepted, there will be a tag link from Pavement to Sidewalk
made in the Wiki, and a link from the highway=footway tag to indicate
the possible use of sidwalk instead.

If there are any other issues with this tag, let's discuss them now so
we can get into the voting process!
