I agree, but it is "passable" that I am trying to achieve. My specific
goal is to capture "places where you can jog" for someone that wishes to
jog in every place, vice "places that are nice to jog". A busy trunk road
with a passable (legal) shoulder is probably not a nice place to jog, but
for something striving to jog on every street, this is an acceptable road
So far from this discussion, this most workable answer without
country-specific exceptions seems to be "exclude cases of
highway=trunk+sidewalk=no+shoulder=no" (along with the other
sidewalk/shoulder tag variants that mean the same thing). This will
probably inadvertently exclude something somewhere that should be foot
routable on the other end, but I'm thinking such a case could have an
explicit foot=yes. Though, this may upset people that feel that adding
sidewalk=no to vast networks of trunk roads is tag spamming in that the
lack of sidewalks ought to be excluded.
