No, the outcome was: We can't reach an agreement, so change the area you 
care about the way you find better without taking information away that 
you think is in there. And in the end, that's apparently the cowboy 
style that OSM is built around, if you like it or not.

And yes, I'm even against separate mapping when I try to put myself into 
the shoes of someone not being able to use their legs or eyes on a 
sidewalk. Even kerb=lowered doesn't tell on what side it is and if I can 
get over it, as some easily get over a 5cm one and others barely can 
make it over a 1-2cm one. If you want to get there, you need to map the 
side and the exact height of a curb, and if I follow your argumentation, 
that actually needs to be a separate barrier=curb way with a specified 
height for all pieces of it and the sidewalk and street need to be areas 
that are adjacent to that barrier so software can flawlessly map all 
points where crossing is possible based on your capabilities.
