My understanding is as follows:
yes means that there is the legal right to use something e.g. you have the
right to walk by foot on a sidewalk.
designated means that there is a legal instrument (generally signage and/or
possibly road marking depending on your state) that *specifically* gives
you permission to use a given feature. For instance, a shared path is one
which bicycles and pedestrians can legally use together, and this is
designated by a shared path sign (AU:R8-2
this case it would be appropriate for a shared pathway to have both foot
and bicycle be set to designated in my opinion.
Theoretically you could add foot=yes to every sidewalk and/or footway
however my understanding is this key is implied, and will also throw and
error in osmose.
