There are only 32 uses according to Taginfo and the tag isn't mentioned in
the wiki. However, there are 4,450 uses of bicycle:lanes and that tag is
briefly mentioned in the wiki. [1][2]

I'm unsure if foot:lanes works as a alternative to pedestrian_lane or if
this is only an addition for more complex situations. In any case i don't
see a problem with it as opposed to sidewalk:right:kerb=no.

Besides, i just realised that sidewalk:right:kerb=no could also mean a
parallel footpath without kerb but with another physical barrier, like for
example here [3].
