I would add also surface (and maybe smoothness) as this one seems
to be quite bad.

Depends on context. It may be higway=footway, highway=pedestrian,
highway=service, there are situations where it would be
highway=cycleway/bridleway, maybe even other highway types in countries
where typical road is unpaved.

I agree with full tagging map and footways would be mapped separetely.
As temporary fixme it may be highway=unclassified with cycleway=track.

Also, I would add also surface (and maybe smoothness) as this one
for footway/cycleway seems to be quite bad.
