Sounds interesting, that would separate "real" foot path from the 
current path mess.

However the big question would be then how to implement it in our 
ecosystem? Something as important as this would need organized switch to 
not fall into chicken-and-egg kind of problem:
a) nobody tags it like this, because tools (including rendering) are not 
ready to deal with it,
b) nobody starts to implement the code to deal with this tag scheme, 
because there's no such beast in a database.
