You can set a country-wide default [1]. Otherwise, you only need to
add emergency=yes when any of its parent access tags have a
restrictive value, explicitly added or implicit from highway=*.
Probably the most common scenario would be on highway=pedestrian, and
rarely on highway=footway/cycleway/bridleway/path.
