there are also some highway:virtual=* and virtual:highway=* mostly used with footway values (footway also path and pedestrian), but the sum of both is around 130 so it’s used even less.

Generally, if this was agreed, wouldn’t we have to split every footway that connects to a road for its last 2 or so meters, because that’s actually the road (in a model that takes the extension of the ways into account)?
