For me that's what the access=* tag is for.

We have dozen primary types and subtypes (_link) of roads defined and 
all the pedestrian squeezed into just 3 general types with no clear 
distinction - I think this is not healthy to treat them as a second 
class citizens any longer.

On standard style (osm-carto) you have all the colors to know the road 
class just by looking at it, while we have still no clue when the path 
should be rendered earlier (outdoor) or later (indoor) than standard, 
and this would be very useful, even if still using just one color.
