[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Sidewalks as separate ways

I agree, it is confusing. I've used the separate way method quite
extensively in a suburban (subdivision) area. Perhaps I could create
some illustrations, though since I'm not much of an artist it will
probably be just screenshots. In the meantime you can see my area
here:

Note I am using sloped_curb=yes right now, but will likely change them
to kerb=lowered. I also haven't used relations yet, as my primary
interest is routing, however I'm not concerned about providing for
directions like "turn left on Roberts Parkway".
