I'd put it like this: "with the intention to indicate that such way is
oneway for pedestrians", because oneway can not apply to pedestrians, they
are excluded by the general definition, and if we changed it, we would
break a lot more than those few exceptions of actual oneway for pedestrians.

it would be introducing another exception, for no good reason, there is
already foot:backward=no with the same intended meaning and without the
problem, as unlike oneway:foot it is consistent with the well introduced
concept of nested tagging.
