But is (access=no and foot=yes) the same as just foot=yes?

My thinking is they are different. foot=yes in isolation leaves open the possibility of other access methods open, whereas if used in conjunction with access=no, it is confirmed as strictly foot only.

As for nuclear explosions... it's dangerous, but you still can go there. You'd be highly advised to take special equipment!

access=no alone would be useful for a wildlife reserve where absolutely no humans are ever allowed under any circumstances, but I know of no such place!
