 From the footnote of that table:
"The United Kingdom Tagging Guidelines 
state that highway=path, when used it the UK, implies "a generic narrow 
path that is used in conjunction with access tags". This makes the 
default "yes" assumption dubious."

What does foot=yes mean?
Some wiki pages say it's 'legal right' another says "A urban path 
without any legal status suitable for walking."

This is a reason why I take much of the wiki with a pinch of salt. 
'foot=yes' should be used in combination with the access tag (usually 
when it's  set to 'no' or 'private') not as a stand alone sub tag (ie 

Are there any data users who use 'highway=footway;foot=yes' to 
distinguish from other footways?
