the idea that oneway is about "driving" and not about "walking" is quite
old, you can find it since 2007:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Key:oneway&oldid=55990
"Description Oneway streets are streets where you are only allowed to drive
in one direction."

This is also what the access page says:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:access#One-way_restrictions

I believe it is beneficial to agree on the colon as separator for combining
individual tags, e.g.
oneway:bicycle=no means is composed of "oneway" and "bicycle", as opposed
to the hypothetical oneway_bicycle which would be a completely new tag
"oneway bicycle". While it would be the same to write "bicycle:oneway", the
general rules about tag composition order discourage this (hence it is used
orders of magnitude less)

following this logics, "oneway:foot" means the oneway restriction applied
to pedestrians, and the result would be no restriction, because "oneway"
already has no implication for pedestrian, so the further restriction for
"foot" will not change it, you may not drive your feet in the other
direction.
