I misremembered the phrasing slightly -- the actual text on the

This was added by Geow, an experienced and active German mapper, in
2015. Reading the actual text, I guess that recommendation doesn't have
direct bearing on the question here, which is mixed-use paths not
The image caption on highway=path used to say "semi-urban path" but
this was removed last year by Geow (who left the helpful comment
"Changed incorrect and misleading image caption. Note that "path" is not
restricted to semi-urban and may be sign posted as well" -- now *that's*
how you edit a wiki, my friends!)
