Thanks for sharing that.  One question though - would it make sense to 
use "sidewalk=separate" (see 
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/sidewalk#values ) on 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/33496127 ?  That way it's clear to all 
data consumers that http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/33496127 exists as 
a sidewalk for it.

I'm guessing that there may be some connections (and possibly kerbs) 
missing, so that a foot router that navigated people over kerbs wouldn't 


but take a more direct route across the intersection and along a bit?
