You still wouldn't know if you could change from the footway/path to
the street or not. Maybe there's some kind of barrier in between them.
If you map them separately you simply lose the information what
(cycleway, sidewalk, whatever) belongs together.

And before some suggests it: no, I don't think a relation is a
manageable solution in this case ;-)
