foot=no means that pedestrians cannot pass that node for any way
passing through the node, not ?

so if you have


representing a way in OSM, and foot=yes on the way (can be implicit),
but foot=no on the X representing the bicycle crossing, pedestrians
cannot pass point 'X'.
At least that is how I understand the current access rules in OSM.
