I think you've just answered your own question.  As I understand it,
access=* specifies an overall default with
exceptions being carved out with, for example, bus=yes meaning nothing but
buses may pass.  Which seems to be
is saying.  Therefore access=no
only makes sense with other tags that carve out exceptions, but it does
have a legitimate use.
