  Yet for ten years or even more the logic was that if the same way is
designated for both pedestrians and cyclists, it cannot be tagged with
highway=footway - as it is for cyclists as well, it cannot be tagged
with highway=cycleway because it is for pedestrians as well, so such
shared ways for this long period were tagged as
highway=path+bicycle=designated+foot=designated. This has also been
the preset in the main OSM editor - JOSM. This is in documentation and
maps for ten or more years.

  Are there any reasons why this must change now? Any benefits?
