Ahh, I see - that makes sense. 

so,  I should leave the pedestrain areas as they are, and add an additional area for the roof (so I would have two areas - one the footpath and the other a roof with the adjacent areas as pedestrian)  


make the entire area highway=pedestrian and have the building=roof are on a layer above it? 

BTW, highway=pedestrian+area=yes does not play nice with the layer tag - it renders over everything else, even when separated by layers (last time I checked). does this mean I should tag it in some other (more correct) fashion, or is this simply a rendering error that needs to be resolved and I should refrain from tagging for the renderer?
