Hi,

During the Weybridge mapping party, I'd encountered some residential 
roads (highway=residential) or service roads (highway=service) that were 
also "public footpaths", so I've mapped those as:

highway=residential
designation=public_footpath

http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/150222454

Marking those roads as highway=footway or highway=path makes no sense 
(to me).

cheers,
Derick
