Inventing new tags to describe combined and segregated footway and
cycleway (both with its own surface) is complicated even in case of
using separate way for this structure.

Tagging it on main road, just because on certain distance there is no
strip of grass separating it from main road would make necessary to
use ridiculous tags. Even in case of long stretches of road, footway
and cycleway separated only by curbs tagging it as one element is apoor

In extreme case - there is one place in my city with cycleway between
two footways. Cycleway, footways and road are all separated by curbs.
Good luck with tagging it as tags on the main road


BTW, in my area there is a recent trend to tag footways and cycleway as
separate ways - even in cases of footways and cycleway separated solely
by a painted line on surface.
