Personally I prefer sidewalk=none. No implies not allowed where none just
means that sidewalks do not exist on either side of the highway. The wiki
does say that 'no' is preferred without giving a reason. No does make sense
if permissions were involved as foot=no or bicycle=no.

If nothing else, Taginfo has 'none' as the overwhelming choice.
