Well, highway=path, access=no is covering case of paths illegal to use.
One may add widely used tags like surface, smoothness etc to describe
in more detail. One may also add use/propose new tags - maybe
social_path=yes may be a new one.

I see no point in creating a new tag for paths/footways illegal to use,
given that current tagging covers it and among interested data
consumers there is support for access=no/private.
