Since 2008/2008, there is a coexistence 
of "highway=footway" with "highway=path" + "foot=designated"
and of "highway=cycleway" with "highway=path" + "bicycle=designated".
Why not also a coexistence 
of "highway=foot_cycleway" with "highway=path" + "foot=designated" + "bicycle=designated".

I think, we have to map many features, but the simpler the lists of tags we produce that way, the better and the easier is our mapping.

The regulation I know from Germany is that the cyclists mustn't urge the pedestrians, but the pedestrians have to let the cyclists pass.
It is the same regulation as between cars and cyclists on a shared lane in USA or Canada 
(see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_lane_marking
and the linked sources: 
http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/htm/2009/part9/part9c.htm (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, 2009 Edition Chapter 9C. Markings)→ scroll to "Section 9C.07 Shared Lane Marking

Except of the right of the pedestrians to use the whole track and to go two by two or three by three, that is even same relation like between cars and cyclists on normal streets.

If the regulation in Poland is different, please tell me.

(P.S. You might also explain matter with the two different layouts of  Polish sign C-13-16)
