On the other had, the argument can be made that oneway=yes should be reserved to legal prescriptions and not just recommendations. Alternatives that came forward are: bidirectional=no, signed_oneway=yes, oneway=signposted, oneway=recommended, oneway=signed

There's also designated_direction=forward|both|backward with 13,306
uses, all in combination with railway=*, but why not reusing it for
hiking/walking/cycling routes? Or, if designated sounds too official,
what about signed_direction=*? In any case i would avoid a key
containing the word oneway.
