No, a router that doesn't consider sidewalks would with the currently
suggested tagging use the sidewalk and think it was a usual footway.
It will not be aware that there is a continuous connection between the
sidewalk and the road, and it will not tell you to cross the street
because it will "think" that there is a separation preventing you to
cross.

cheers,
Martin
