That is how I do it, except I tag the way that crosses as (iD preset) crosswalk from curb to curb, which shares a node with the road. So i don't need a tag on the node too, right? 

Sidewalks are so convoluted and make connections to other sidewalks that go between buildings and into parks - but don't connect to the roads (legally or are physically blocked with a hedge) except at crosswalks or roads without sidewalks. 

Adding both/left/right is a placeholder until an actual sidewalk can be tagged and crosswalks mapped.
