Duck test it. Most of them look like, and work like, footpaths to me. 

Access tagging is more problematic however, as the recent discussion
about service=driveway has shown. Although it is private property, it is
considered accessible to those with a legitimate interest, e.g.
deliveries, emergency services, "I have broken down, can I use your
phone"... By "accessible" I mean that you can't actually sue them for
walking down your front path to your door and ringing the bell.
