In the US, most (many?) states allow pedestrians to walk on shoulders if there is no sidewalk/footway, with the exception of motorways. How would a mapper know if this is a shoulder or a pedestrian lane?

This depends on legislature. In Germany, on normal streets (not on 
motorways) the shoulder is not only for emergency use and pedestrians, 
but also for all slower vehicles. These should drive there to allow 
faster vehicles to overtake them.
